Confirmed active Catholics who help distribute the Eucharist during Mass
CONTACT: Tina Gustavson, 310 649-1474,

Eucharistic Ministers are lay active Catholics who help distribute the Holy Eucharist during Mass. In every celebration of the Eucharist, there should be a sufficient number of ministers of Holy Communion so that it may be distributed under both species in a reverent and orderly manner. Eucharistic Ministers must have received the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Eucharist and participate faithfully in the sacramental and liturgical life of the Church. Ministers receive spiritual, theological, and practical preparation to fulfill their role with knowledge and reverence, in accordance with the Norms for the Dioceses of the United States of America and the guidelines of the diocesan bishop.
