Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMs) assist the priest and deacon in reverently distributing the Eucharist, the Body and Blood of Christ, at all masses for all Sundays, holy days of obligation, and other special celebrations for the parish. It is a beautiful gift to be able to bring the Body and Blood of Christ to His flock!
Members must be Catholics who have received the Sacrament of Confirmation, and they must be active, registered parishioners. Ministers serve at a Mass of their choosing. Each Mass has a captain who is responsible for the ministers at that Mass. Normally, there are two teams of ministers who serve on alternate weeks. EMs meet before Mass for a brief prayer.
