Priest and Deacons are Ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are commissioned by the pastor to assist the priests and deacons in distributing the precious Body and Blood of our Lord and Savior during Mass. This is a ministry with great responsibility. Reverence and respect for the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist is at the heart of this ministry.
To be a Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion you must be 18 years of age or older, confirmed and able to receive the Eucharist, trained, and commissioned by the pastor.
