The Lessons of St. Vincent DePaul

St. Vincent DePaul is a world-wide movement of lay people who seek to help the poor and to grow in holiness. Our St. Vincent DePaul members will be available to help transients and to visit people within our parish boundaries. We often have people call our parish with material needs. We want to show them compassion and caring.

What's an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion?

"Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion" is the formal title of laypeople who distribute the Eucharist during Mass. As the title implies, there are also "ordinary ministers" - those who are literally "ordained" to the ministry namely bishops, priests, and deacons. These ministers are usually the first in order to distribute the Body and Blood of Christ, the deacon being the customary distributor of the cup.

Let us keep these young ones in our prayers as they receive the Body and Blood of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
