Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

View all ministries

We have a written mandate from the Diocese to assist the ordinary ministers of Holy Communion (i.e., Priests and Deacons) during the Liturgy by providing the Holy Eucharist to parishioners at Mass. A very special aspect of this ministry is to take Holy Communion to the parish homebound. We also bring the weekly bulletin to the homebound, make note of any special needs (e.g., requiring Sacrament of Reconciliation), and make note of who received and who did not and why. Ministers are welcome to share the message of the Homily from Mass and the readings themselves by bringing along the Missalette.
