Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC)

Communion Ministers at Mass

Sharing the sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ with God’s people is an awesome gift. In this ministry, we assist the Ordained Ministers with administering Holy Communion to those present at Mass. Believing in the Theology of the Eucharist, we witness to our faith in the real presence of Christ by distributing the Eucharist with heartfelt reverence and respect.

If you are a fully initiated member of the Catholic Church having received the sacraments of Baptism, Holy Eucharist, and Confirmation and if you understand and believe in the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, then you are eligible to serve as an Extraordinary Minister.

For more information and/or to join the EMHC ministry, please contact the parish office at 262-377-1070 or email the parish office.

Communion Ministers to the Sick and Homebound

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink,
a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me,
sick and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.” – Matt 25:35-36

One of the Corporal Works of Mercy is to visit the sick. We have a team of parishioners who take Holy Communion to those who are not able to come to church to receive the Eucharist at Mass due to illnesses, disabilities, infirmities, lack of mobility, and the like. We visit these people in our community to show them that they are valued, to pray with them, to ease their loneliness, to bring them smiles and comfort, and to give them Jesus in the Eucharist for which they so often long to receive.

If you need assistance with taking Communion to local facilities, please contact the parish office at 262-377-1070 or email the parish office.

“When you have received Him, stir up your heart to do Him homage; speak to Him about your spiritual life, gazing upon Him in your soul where He is present for your happiness; welcome Him as warmly as possible, and behave outwardly in such a way that your actions may give proof to all of His Presence.” – St. Francis de Sales
