EXTRAORDINARY MINISTER OF THE EUCHARIST
MINISTRY LEAD: Candas Konop, 715-577-9597
MISSION: From the Bishops’ Committee on the Liturgy Newsletter, October 2002
While extraordinary ministers may never distribute Holy Communion in the place of priests and deacons, their ministry is often needed to facilitate the distribution of Holy Communion “when the size of the congregation or the incapacity of the bishop, priest, or deacon requires it.” (Norms for the Distribution and Reception of Holy Communion under Both Kinds [Norms], no. 28) All should be grateful for the exemplary ministry provided by so many Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion throughout the dioceses of the United States of America.
INFORMATION FOR THIS MINISTRY: As an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, you assist the priest in distributing communion. Training is provided for new Eucharistic Ministers. Must be a confirmed Catholic with a good Christian reputation. We are also in need of people willing to take communion to the home-bound and ill.
- Each Mass requires six Eucharistic Ministers
- All Masses need more volunteers
