Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion serve in three different capacities at Sacred Hearts Parish – at all our liturgies, bringing communion to the homebound and bringing communion to area nursing homes and assisted-living residences.

Liturgies – Sundays & Holy Days

Contact: Cheryl Lupi - lupie1@comcast.net

The Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion assist at parish liturgies on Sundays, Holy Days of Obligation, and daily morning Mass by helping the presiding priest in the distribution of communion. The purpose of this ministry is to allow our brothers and sisters in Christ to receive the body and blood of Jesus in a reverent manner. Serving as Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion also heightens our personal encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist and allows us to add a new dimension to our devotion by both receiving Him and acting as His vehicle for others to receive Him. Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion must be members in good standing with the Church. Training for this ministry is offered several times during the year. There is always a need for new volunteers in this ministry.
