The Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EM for short) assist the priests with the distribution of Holy Communion at all Masses. Some Minsters also bring Holy Communion to the aged and the sick at home.
We continually strive to foster our own devotion to the Eucharist and show by example to the rest of the faithful our devotion and reverence towards the most august sacrament of the altar. As a group, we aim to help one another to develop a sense of piety and reverence for the Eucharist.
To be an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, you have to be a practising Catholic for at least 2 years, have an attitude of service to the Christian assembly, be physically fit and have an understanding of the Eucharist and the proper rite used for distribution. You also have to be living out the faith that we profess.
To find out more about our Ministry, just come and have a chat with us after Mass. We are always seated at the front of the right transept of the church.
