Extraordinary Ministers of Communion
Extraordinary Ministers of Communion are called by God to become servants to other members of the Body of Christ. The Primary function of an Extraordinary Minster is to assist the priest in distributing the true presence of Christ to other members during the sacrifice of the Mass.
“Extraordinary” is a term meant to distinguish this minister from the “ordinary” ministers of Communion: priests and deacons.
Who may serve as a Extraordinary Minister of Communion?
- Must be 16 years of age or older and have received all of the Initiation Sacraments – Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.
- If married, the marriage must be a valid Catholic marriage.
- Must be a practicing Catholic who is a registered parishioner and who shows a deep reverence for and devotion to the Holy Eucharist by their demeanor, their attire, and the manner in which they handle the consecrated bread or wine.
