Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion

Mission: The primary mission of the St. Stephen’s Eucharistic
Ministers is to assist the priest and deacon at
Mass in distributing the Body and Blood of Christ to the
faithful in Holy Communion. Additionally, many Eucharistic
Ministers also bring Communion to the sick and
homebound (Minister of Care). All Eucharistic Ministers
are further authorized to assist with the distribution of ashes
and the blessing of throats.

Eligibility: To serve as a Eucharistic Minister one
must be at least 16 years old and a Confirmed, practicing
Catholic. Applicants for this ministry must be approved
by the pastor. Serving as an extraordinary Minister of the
Eucharist is a great privilege, and one the lay person
should consciously seek to remain worthy of.
