Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

You give them something to eat..”  ~Mark 6:37

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMs) assist with the distribution of Holy Communion at Sunday Mass. If available, you may also choose to serve at daily Mass, to serve on Holy Days and additional seasonal liturgies, and to take Holy Communion to the homebound and/or those in a hospital or care facility.


Upon completion of this training session you will be commissioned as an Extraordinary Minister of Communion for Saint John Vianney Parish.

Candidates for Extraordinary Minister of Communion should:

  • be at least 18 years of age
  • a registered member of Saint John Vianney parish
  • have no impediment to receiving the sacraments
  • attend the training session

Serving as an EM offers a unique opportunity to deepen your faith and grow closer to God. By your example of reverence and commitment, it also inspires others to active discipleship.
