Catholic lay persons who assists in the distribution of Holy Communion,
either during the Mass, or afterwards, such as to housebound persons.
Section [156] prohibits the use of other titles for these lay persons.
The term "Eucharist" does not appear in their title, because it would imply
a broader function, which is reserved for the priest alone. Despite these instruction,
a very common error is the use of the terms "Eucharistic Ministers", or "Extraordinary Ministers
of Eucharist".  These improper titles have appeared on several book titles, instructional
handbooks, and in many articles.

A Faith Formation Council was organized on February 13th, 2012 to help accomplish the
following goals:
  •  We need to have a home for practicing Catholics to hear, feel and live the spirit of Jesus.
  •  We need to extend ourselves to have our non-practicing Catholic family members, friends and
      neighbors return to the Word of God.
  •  We need to spread the Words of Jesus to our non-Catholic friends and neighbors and warmly
      invite them into our family..  
All are invited to join the Council and assist in making these goals a reality.  If you would like to
obtain more information and/or provide comments concerning any of the Faith Formation
objectives and goals please
