Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion assist in distributing the body and blood of Christ. Each minister is part of a team serving at Mass. Communion ministers are commissioned to serve for six years. Many ministers are required for this large parish and training is provided.
Anyone interested in serving will be put in touch with one of the priests for a meeting. If that person discerns that they are ready to serve after this meeting, one of the priests will have a formal commissioning session for them. This commissioning session usually takes place after one of the weekend Masses. Then the new minister will be paired with an experienced minister for some mentoring and training.
This ministry is open to teenagers and adults who have celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation. Teenagers must be 16 years or older.
