These are lay people commissioned by the diocese that help distribute communion during the celebration of Mass.
Extraordinary Ministers serve at Mass when there is a need, including holy days and feast days. They must understand the divine presence of our Lord in the sacred species.
Extraordinary Ministers are scheduled monthly with the other liturgical ministers, i.e., lectors and altar servers, etc.
All volunteers must complete the Safe Environment Training (SET) requirements through the Diocese. For more information on these requirements, please contact Deb Vinci at firstname.lastname@example.org or in the parish office at 480-595-0883.
