Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are parishioners who have received special training from the pastor, and training and certification from the Diocesan Office for Worship. This ministry is used in settings where there are insufficient priests and deacons to properly facilitate the distribution of Holy Communion.
In addition to assisting at mass, Eucharistic Ministers are encouraged to take Holy Communion to Catholics who are homebound, hospitalized, or residents of nursing homes. Some hospitals and nursing homes may require that the Extraordinary Minister receive orientation. The institution may also require a background check.
Extraordinary Ministers for:
– Hospitals and Homebound, please contact Diane Friebert 440.774.2302.
– Nursing Homes, please call Joe McCormick 440.775.7811.
