Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are trained by the pastor and commissioned to distribute Holy Communion at Masses when an insufficient number of ordained priests/deacons are available to serve the congregation present. They also bring Holy Communion to parishioners who are homebound or convalescing in local hospitals. In addition to serving our parish family, one of four teams of Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion leads a Eucharistic service at the Jersey Shore Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on Industrial Way, Eatontown, every Sunday morning.
