Extraordinary Ministers of Communion

This ministry is open to all member Catholics who are in good standing with the Roman Catholic Church. Receiving Holy Communion at Mass is one of the seven Sacraments of our faith. It was instituted by Jesus Christ as is written in the Gospels. (e.g. Matthew 26:26-28) Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist (EMs) assist the priest at Mass with the distribution of Holy Communion. Anyone interested in assisting in this ministry should speak to the priest or parish coordinator. Usually ministers are approved by the chancery office and serve for a period of three years.


These ministers are the “face” of the church. They greet parishioners and visitors when they enter the church; therefore, friendliness is an important virtue. There is always a need for more help in this ministry and if you would like to help please contact the office or the person listed under Contacts.
