Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Contact: Dave Duren

Ministry Mission Statement: Priest and Deacons are Ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. The Second Vatican Council called for the faithful present at Mass to assist the Ordinary Ministers in distributing Holy Communion, as requested by the Pastor.

Genuine ministry is about humble service. The model for all ministry is Christ the Lord who came to serve, not to be served. His command to "love one another" (cf. John 13:43) was modeled throughout his life and ministry. The Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion must put aside personal needs in order to serve the community and give faithful testimony to Christ’s presence in the Eucharist.

Current Ministry ActivitiesExtraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (formerly called "Eucharistic Ministers") are formally commissioned to give assistance. These individuals serve Christ who is present in the assembly by distributing his Body and Blood to their brothers and sisters during Mass.  Some of them also serve as Extraordinary Ministers to the Sick.

Holy CommunionWe are called to ministry through our baptism. While ministry can take on several forms, liturgical ministry serves the Body of Christ during the celebration of the Mass.  Genuine ministry is about humble service. The model for all ministry is Christ the Lord who came to serve, not to be served. His command to “love one another” (cf. John 13:43) was modeled throughout his life and ministry. The Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion must put aside personal needs in order to serve the community and give faithful testimony to Christ’s presence in the Eucharist.
