EXTRAORDINARY MINISTER OF HOLY COMMUNION

An “Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion” is a Catholic lay person who assists in the distribution of Holy Communion, either during the Mass, or afterwards, such as to housebound persons. The ordinary minister of Holy Communion is a Bishop, a priest or a deacon. The extraordinary minister of Holy Communion is an acolyte, or another of Christ’s faithful deputed. Extraordinary ministers may distribute Holy Communion at Eucharistic celebrations only when there are no ordained ministers present or when those ordained ministers present at a liturgical celebration are truly unable to distribute Holy Communion. They may also exercise this function at Eucharistic celebrations where there are particularly large numbers of the faithful and which would be excessively prolonged because of an insufficient number of ordained ministers to distribute Holy Communion. The community has extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion to assist in distributing Holy Communion during Holy Mass and the house-bound who are not able to attend the Holy Mass. Following is the Rota for the Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion.
