Men and women lay ministers are often deputed as extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion to assist priests and deacons with the smooth distribution of Holy Communion at Mass and to bring Holy Communion to those who are sick and homebound. This second edition provides updated pastoral commentary in light of the third edition of The Roman Missal. Veteran ministers or newly deputed ministers will be given the tools needed to effectively serve during the liturgy and appreciate more deeply their liturgical roles.

This book includes:

  • A basic theological and historical overview of this ministry
  • Resources for formation and the deepening of ministerial spirituality
  • Questions for discussion and reflection
  • Generous quotations from current Church documents, liturgical rubrics, and Scripture
  • Instructive photos, images, and text boxes
  • Recommendations for liturgical procedures

“Beyond the practicalities of facilitating distribution of the Eucharist due to the size of the assembly, this second edition Guide for Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist treats well the historical, spiritual and ministerial foundations for this ministry assisting the priests and deacons.  This handbook is a must-read for trainers and those in training with liturgical ministry and for those conscious of their personal preparation for this important ministry at worship and in assistance to the sick and homebound.”

--Most Reverend Joseph N. Perry, Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago

“ “This is not only an excellent, hands-on guide for those serving as Extraordinary Ministers, but it also offers opportunities for personal reflection, and a practical framework for enhancing our ministry by deepening our spiritual life. It is ideal for newcomers to Eucharistic Ministry, for training new Extraordinary Ministers in the parish, or as a refresher for the seasoned minister— a wonderful resource.”

--Elisa M. St. Clair, Pastoral Associate, Our Lady of Hope, Ipswich, MA
