Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion

The ordinary ministers of Holy Communion are the Priests and Deacon.

 Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC) are are lay people called upon to assist the priest and facilitate the distribution of Holy Communion to parishioners.

Before being commissioned as an EMHC, candidates complete training and formation. This program provides theological and spiritual formation, as well as training in practical and liturgical skills.  EMHC are designated for service in their own parish or specified institution, and therefore are not authorized to exercise this ministry in other parishes or institutions.

EMHC are required to show the greatest reverence for the Most Holy Eucharist by their demeanor, their attire, and the manner in which they handle the consecrated bread.

If you're interested in becoming an EMHC, please contact the Church Office at 203-268-8695 to speak with Father and register for appropriate training.
