Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion assist at the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass on weekends, Holy Days of Obligation, and at Daily Mass. Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion also bring Holy Communion to the sick and homebound. There is a training session conducted by the diocese usually twice a year. If someone wishes to bring Holy Communion to the sick, there is one additional training session. Any member of the parish who is 17 or older may become an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion.

The rite of commissioning for Extraordinary Ministers includes this instruction: “In this ministry, you must be examples of Christian living in faith and conduct; you must strive to grow in holiness through this sacrament of unity and love. Remember that, though many, we are one body because we share in the one bread and one cup. As Ministers of Holy Communion, be, therefore, especially observant of the Lord’s company to love your neighbor. For when he gave his body as food to his disciples, he said to them: “This is my commandment, that you should love one another as I have loved you.”

If you are interested in becoming an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion or would like some more information, please contact Deacon Art.
