If a priest of deacon is present to assist the priest celebrant in the distribution of Holy Communion, one less EMHC will be necessary. The above numbers include one EMHC to distribute the Eucharist to the musicians in the choir loft.

If not enough EMHC are present, please volunteer.

The Mass assignment schedule for the Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion will be emailed or mailed to each active Minister on a three-month basis. Included in the mailing will be a listing of the active Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion as a resource for finding a replacement as needed.

If unable to fulfill your assigned Ministry, please make an effort to find a replacement.

For more information or assistance, please contact the coordinator for the Ministry of Holy Communion.
