In every celebration of the Eucharist there should be a sufficient number of ministers for Holy Communion so that it can be distributed in an orderly and reverent manner. To this end, "the priest may call upon extraordinary ministers to assist him" (USCCB).  Extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion will receive training in order to fulfill their role with knowledge and reverence.

This ministry is open to all high school age through adult members of the parish.  Extra Ordinary Minister training is required.

The Christian faithful who come together as one in expectation of the Lord's coming are instructed by the Apostle Paul to sing together Psalms, hymns, and spiritual canticles (cf. Col. 3:16). Singing is the sign of the heart's joy (cf. Acts 2:46).
