Yours is the work of ministering Christ’s Body and Blood to the Body of Christ — the Church. Yours is the service at the Lord’s reconciling table. Yours is the ministry of the One who was broken and poured out for us; the ministry of Christ who is our Passover and our lasting peace.
This ministry assists the priest with the distribution of Holy Communion at weekend liturgies. Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion also bring the Eucharist to the sick and shut-ins. Training is provided.
