Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, or Eucharistic Ministers, are properly formed, instructed and commissioned disciples who assist the priest in the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass and to the sick and homebound members of the parish. Eligibility to join this ministry requires being an active, registered member of the parish with a prayerful willingness to serve.
As a Eucharistic Minister you will be asked to fulfill weekly assignments for distribution of Holy Communion under the direction of the Coordinators at all Masses, special Liturgies and homebound. It is not only an honor but a privilege to serve in this ministry, therefore you must be a practicing Catholic attending Mass every Sunday and receiving the Eucharist.
Time Commitment: 1 hour if assigned to a Sunday Mass; homebound visitations are approximately 2 hours.
Training Required: Diocesan training workshop and meetings with the Coordinators.
Background Screening Required: Yes
