Ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are bishops, priests, and deacons. These persons distribute Holy Communion by virtue of their ordination.
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion have the privilege of serving the Eucharist at Mass and to the sick in their homes when an Ordinary Minister is not available or is unable for some reason.
Preparation for becoming a Special Minister of the Eucharist will be provided as new volunteers express their interest. For information about Special Ministers of Holy Communion for the Sick and Homebound or for information on Special Ministers for the Eucharist within the Mass call Sister Loretta Primus at 302-829-8183.
