Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
“The Body of Christ!” How wonderful to be able to say these words and share in the Eucharist in this very special way. Our Extraordinary Ministers aid the clergy in distributing the consecrated Body and Blood of our Lord during Mass. These ministers serve on a rotating basis. The parish provides training for those who may be called to serve our church community in this special ministry.
