Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
“It is a gift to be a Eucharistic Minister – to share the Body and Blood of Christ with another,” said one Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion reflecting on her experience at Holy Family. The moment of communion is one that should be seized by both the minister and the communicant. This moment is unique because it is both personal and much bigger than the two people.
Those called to this ministry have, or soon acquire the grace in movement and reverence in touch. Reverence in touch is especially important for Eucharistic Ministers since their whole work involves taking in hand the vessels of the Body of Christ and of the Blood of Christ and sharing them with everyone.
