In every celebration of the Eucharist, there should be a sufficient number of ministers of Holy Communion so that it may be distributed in a reverent and orderly manner. When the size of the congregation requires it, “the priest may call upon extraordinary ministers to assist him, i.e., duly instituted acolytes or even other faithful who have been deputed for this purpose.
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion should receive sufficient spiritual, theological, and practical preparation to fulfill their role with knowledge and reverence. Extraordinary Ministers are required to be trained and commissioned by the Diocese to perform these duties for the parish.
If you are interested in serving the Lord at Mass as an Extraordinary Minister please contact the parish at 724-846-7540 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
