Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion—Are required to assist the priest (and deacon) in the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass. These ministers are appointed by the Archdiocese, following discussion with the Parish Priest, for a fixed, renewable, term. If you, or anyone you know, would be interested in becoming an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, then you should contact Fr. Donnelly in the first instance, either to volunteer your services or to nominate someone you think would be appropriate for this parish service. Service will be at the Mass you normally attend and will usually be no more than once per month. Training will be given before you first exercise this ministry. Whilst we would be happy to consider anyone who might be willing to offer this service, we are particularly short at both the 10am and 12noon Masses on Sunday.
