The Cathedral of Saint Thomas More News:

Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist

Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist are duly deputized by the Rector to assist the priest in the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass and to the homebound or sick in the Cathedral Parish.  Upon volunteering, individuals receive appropriate instruction and are then assigned duties at the various Masses throughout the week. Homebound visits are generally scheduled after the 9:00 or 11:00am Sunday Masses

If we have enough ministers, a person will only serve once every 5 or 6 weeks. It is a very rewarding ministry, and our homebound parishioners look forward to your visits every week. This ministry is not a permanent one but is for a 5-year term, renewable once. The reason for this is that neither the Church nor the Diocese desires to have Extraordinary Ministers see their ministry as a permanent one. This is the reason that we need to refresh the ranks of our ministers so that many of the faithful can share in the benefits of this wonderful ministry.

The attendance at a Diocesan training workshop is mandatory for newly appointed ministers.
