Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are those persons who are commissioned to assist the priest in distributing the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ to the assembly.  In sharing this responsibility with the priest, we affirm that we are the Body of Christ; one in faith, hope and love.  Those people who wish to be an Extraordinary Minister should have received the three Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, First Eucharist and Confirmation.  Training sessions are given so that the Eucharist can be distributed with reverence.  Ministers are scheduled on a monthly basis.  Sign-up for this ministry occurs during May.
