The extraordinary ministers assist our priest to distribute Holy Communion during Mass and/or taking it to those in local rest homes and the housebound. The ministers should comprise of parishioners who have a deep prayer life, who receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation regularly, and who strive at attending daily Mass as frequently as possible. This is a serious commitment that reflects a great love for Jesus and for the sick in whom Jesus hides… (Mt. 25, 36). Meeting with your parish priest will help you to discern whether it is God’s will for you to serve Him as an EMHC.
