ministers of the eucharist / communion
"Then he ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground; and he took the seven loaves, and after giving thanks he broke them and gave them to his disciples to distribute; and they distributed them to the crowd. 7 They had also a few small fish; and after blessing them, he ordered that these too should be distributed. 8 They ate and were filled; and they took up the broken pieces left over, seven baskets full." "Servers, readers, commentators, and members of the choir also exercise a genuine liturgical function.” (CCC- 1143)
Under the authority of the Bishop of the Diocese, the Pastor of the parish chooses men and women to assist him in the distribution of the Eucharist during mass. These Extraordinary Ministers of Communion may also, after proper instruction and with the direction of the pastor, take communion to the sick and housebound of the parish. Our pastor would like to set up a visiting ministry to take communion to the housebound of the parish. If you wish to volunteer, please advise Fr. Greg.
