Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are confirmed members of the parish who are trained to assist with the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass. They are trained in the practical details as well as their own spiritual preparation. Many of these ministers also visit the homebound of the parish, sharing the Word of God and the Most Holy Eucharist with those unable to attend weekly Mass.

Ushers are key ministers of hospitality and welcome. These volunteers have the opportunity and responsibility of representing our entire faith community in their interaction with those joining us for worship.
