Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
Each of us in baptism was anointed priest, prophet and king so that we might go forth to minister. Vatican II has reaffirmed our participation in the fullness of ministry as was the tradition in the early church. As Extraordinary Ministers, we have been called to serve God’s people in a very special way. In accepting this responsibility, not only have we agreed to demonstrate our love and understanding of Eucharist, we have also committed to grow in faith by experiencing Eucharist in our daily lives. In ministering to the assembly at Mass and to those unable to attend because of illness or infirmity, we strive to reawaken in each communicant the fullest meaning of Eucharist.
As Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion we answer the Lord Jesus’ call to serve. Our service to St. Ignatius Loyola Catholic Community is our way of sharing in our relationship with God while developing an ever deepening commitment to strengthen the spirit of the Body of Christ within community.
