Liturgical Eucharistic Ministers

Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist

The lay faithful distributors are called extraordinary ministers.  They function only when recommended by their pastors and are commissioned by the bishop.  When we place the Body or Blood into the outstretched hands of our assemblies, we invite them to receive the Body and Blood of Christ.  Our love for the Eucharist should be evident in a mature and lively faith.  It is vital to understand that this is a Ministry.


Responsibilities of the Eucharistic Minister

  • Learn the specifics of the liturgical space such as the names and location of the sacred vessels and cloths used during the distribution of Communion. 

  • Learning how and when reserved hosts are taken to or from the Tabernacle.
