Extraordinary Ministers

Ministers of the Eucharist are designated religious and lay individuals who help with the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass, at other special Liturgies, and to parishioners unable to attend Mass. A preparation program is required for those who are to be commissioned as Eucharistic Ministers. Serving in this ministry results in several benefits: a deepening of faith; a realization of Christ’s great love for us through the Eucharist; and a better understanding of the power of prayer.
