Holy Family Catholic Church at 9800 Baymeadows Rd, Jacksonville, FL 32256 US - Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Coordinators:   Carolyn Swidorsky  


For the October, November and December, 2014 schedule, please click here.

Please note that there are no highlighted names on this documents.  If you need to see a copy with highlighted names, please take a copy in the Sacristy.  Thank you.

Share your volunteer time with the church as an Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMs).  EM's assist the clergy of the parish by helping to distribute Holy Communion at Mass, and by visiting the sick and infirm.  A short training session teaches ministers about the handling of the Eucharist and special situations that sometimes arise.  Mimnisters can choose the Mass times and how often they wish to serve.


Those who participate in this ministry should have a deep reverence for, and devotion to, the Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, as well as a desire to serve their brothers and sisters. 
In addition to distributing Holy Communion, EMs who serve at Mass prepare the altar before the liturgy, clear it afterwards, and ensure that the sacred vessels are ready for the next liturgy. 
Some EMs are sent forth from Mass to bring Holy Communion to those who cannot participate with us in the liturgy, including the homebound and those in nursing facilities. (Those who wish to be part of this ministry need additional training.)
At Holy Family, Carolyn Swidorsky and Shannon Cutler are the Coordinators for this ministry. The Coordinator schedules ministers for service at Mass, maintains a roster of those involved in this ministry, and assists the Pastor in the recruitment and training of new ministers.
Thank you for responding to the Lord’s call to this wonderful ministry.
