EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF HOLY COMMUNION
Assists the priest in the distribution of Holy Communion. Bishops, priests and deacons are the usual, or “ordinary” ministers of communion since this is an intrinsic part of their role. The lay faithful are “extraordinary” ministers since they function only when recommended by their pastors and designated by the bishop. This is a ministry of both invitation and challenge, for when we place the bread or cup into the hands of our assemblies, we not only invite them to receive the Body and Blood of Christ, we challenge them to become it as well.
