EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS

"I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, whoever believes in me will never thirst" -- John 6:35

We are all able to partake of the Body and Blood of Christ, and as an Extraordinary Minister you serve a role in the distribution. Bringing together those willing to assist in the distribution of Holy Communion is a special ministry to the Church. Below are resources that may be of use to the extraordinary minister.

LECTORS OR READERS

"Ezra read plainly from the book of the law of God, interpreting it so that all could understand what was read."-- Nehemiah 8:8

Learning to serve as a lector in the parish is another important ministry to the Church. It is our hope that these materials will adequately assist in your preparation and training of parish Lectors:
