An Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion is a lay person who has been commissioned to distribute Holy Communion where there are not enough priests or deacons available and/or in the case of a serious necessity (taking Holy Communion to the sick and homebound). The Extraordinary Minister is call extraordinary in order to separate him or her from the ordinary minister of Holy Communion, who is a bishop, priest, or deacon (Code of Canon Law, c. 910). EMHCs must be approved by the diocese and commissioned prior to beginning their ministry.
