The Ministry of Eucharist in the Catholic Church is recognized by all believers as a high honor. It carries with it the responsibility to become Eucharist to others, to be men and women whose lives and relationships are a reflection of the nourishment and grace they extend to others through offering them the Body and Blood of Christ. Our mission, then, is not only to our parish or to our pastor, but a genuine ministry, whether we are serving in ligurgy, living in our home, or dealing with everyday duties at the worksite.
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion Responsibilities
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion assist at Mass thorough the distribution of Holy Communion, and take Communion to the sick, those in need and others unable to celebrate the Eucharist with the parish community. They attend to essential details during Mass and after Mass purification of the vessels.
Holidays, Feast Days and Holy Days of Obligation Masses
These Masses are heavily attended and therefore require additional Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion for all masses. There will be "Special" Sign-Up sheets posted in the ministry rooms at both churches for you to sign-in at a mass of your choosing. This assists the presiding priest in determining the needs for each Mass.
