Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion* The Bishop of Savannah has delegated lay persons to assist the priests in distributing Holy Communion whenever there is a large number of communicants. These men and women should have a deep devotion to the Eucharist and are trained in the proper distribution of this sacred, spiritual food. Each minister must be 18 years of age, confirmed and in good standing (attend Sunday Mass and Holy Days of Obligation and receive the Sacrament of Penance regularly). If married, the marriage must be recognized by the Catholic Church. *Membership is a privilege granted by the pastor.
Lectors Lectors proclaim the Word of God at Mass by reading the Scripture
readings other than the Gospel. Being a lector nourishes one’s personal and
spiritual growth as well as promotes a keen awareness of the sacredness of the
Mass. The gift needed for the ministry is confidence and a clear speaking voice
before large groups. Training is held periodically throughout the
year on an individual basis.
