Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Over eighty men and women assist the ordinary ministers (the priests and deacon) at the Sunday and weekday liturgies. Our parish also has a visitation team which is dedicated to ministering to homebound parishioners. Called by the pastor to serve for a period of three years (with the option to renew), Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion range in age from seventeen to eighty and are single, married, married couples and widows. Helen Monteagudo heads the Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion ministry.


Those in this ministry reflect and actualize the words of the parish mission statement: "...believes in Jesus Christ, is nourished by the Eucharist, seeks a deeper understanding of Jesus' Gospel and strives to be an effective sign of Jesus' presence within our society." If you are interested in this ministry, please let us know by sending a note via the contact form.
