The Eucharist is the source and center of our spiritual life. Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are called to assist the celebrant, other priests and deacons with the distribution of communion.
Extraordinary Ministers of the Holy Communion also assist in bringing the Eucharist to the homebound, infirm area nursing homes and group homes. Any confirmed Catholic parishioner 16 years or older, having a strong and active faith, and willing to commit to regular service, is welcome to serve.
Qualities of an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion are:
- An appreciation and love of the Eucharist
- Ability to serve at scheduled masses or arrange for a substitute if unable to fulfill an assignment
- Must be at least entering their senior year of high school
