“The faithful, whether religious or lay, who are authorized as extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist can distribute Communion only when there is no priest, deacon or acolyte, when the priest is impeded by illness or advanced age, or when the number of the faithful going to Communion is so large as to make the celebration of the Mass excessively long.”
These ministers assist the clergy in the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass. In certain instances, the Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, may be delegated to visit our homebound parishioners where they conduct a prayer service and distribute Holy Communion.
It is a great privilege to distribute the Body and Blood of Christ to the members of the congregation. Please see Debra Tucker of Pamela Osborne if you would like to serve in this ministry.
