Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
This ministry is made up of laypeople in the church who distribute Holy Communion during Mass. Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion serve at each of the weekend Masses at the Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul. In addition, Extraordinary Ministers may be asked to distribute the Eucharist at special Masses such as weddings and funerals.
Candidates for the Extraordinary Ministry of Holy Communion should receive proper training before they are commissioned for service in the parish.
