Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Schedules can now be found under Liturgical Ministries Monthly Assignments

Extraordinary Ministers are lay people who distribute the Blessed Sacrament at Masses as well as bring it to the home-bound and those in nursing homes.  Such distribution, in church or in home, is only administered upon specific direction of the priest.  

In St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish, the Extraordinary Ministers are under the direction of Deacon Jerry Purcell.  New Eucharistic Ministers are instructed twice a year and twice a year all the Eucharistic Ministers meet for an hour of prayer and spiritual development.  

They go through a period of instruction as how to follow the Rite of Administration of Communion to the Sick by a special Minister.

Anyone, male or female, chosen to be an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist must be at least eighteen years of age.  He or she must have received all of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist).  If married, the person must have a valid marriage in the Roman Catholic Church.

Normally Extraordinary Ministers, as lay people, wear secular clothing.  In the case of a religious the usual habit of the community is worn.  If the local parish chooses to use a special dress for the Extraordinary Ministers, it must be distinctive and not confused with the dress of a priest or deacon.
