Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Return to » Liturgy

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion assist in the distribution of the Eucharist to the faithful at Mass and those who are homebound, due to health or age. To be an Extraordinary Minister a parishioner of St. Clement must be fully initiated into the Church, having received the Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation. A love for the Eucharist is also an obvious prerequisite. Special training and certification is provided for this ministry by the Office of Worship of the Archdiocese of New Orleans.

If you are interested in learning more about this ministry or would like to be considered for regular service as an Extraordinary Minister, please contact the Parish Center at (504) 887-7821.
