OF THE EUCHARIST
Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist assist priests with the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass and to the sick and homebound in their places of residence. Whether at Mass or in other special situations, the minister enables the recipient to share more deeply in the Body of Christ and experience the great love of the Triune God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
This ministry is open to adults who meet the requirements of the parish and the Archdiocese of Newark and receive the applicable training. Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist are needed for all the Sundays and other special liturgies during the year. Schedules are arranged with the Ministry leaders.
