Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
Extraordinary Ministers of Communion serve the Eucharistic life of the community by assisting the Ordinary Ministers of the Eucharist during the Rite of Communion. They are acknowledged by the bishop at the request of the Pastor to assist the celebrant and other Ordinary Ministers during liturgy in sharing the Eucharistic body and blood of Christ. They are commissioned by the Pastor or his delegate. The commissioning should take place in the presence of the community during mass.
