Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist

Liturgical Ministries

Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist (EOM’s) recognize the Body of Christ in those to whom they offer Eucharist. They extend the consecrated Body and Blood of Christ to their fellow parishioners. EOM’s lead a Christian life and participate fully in the life of the parish and the wider community. Only fully initiated members of the faith community, in full Communion with the Church, can serve as Ministers of the Eucharist.

Eucharistic Ministers commit to a bi-monthly schedule, serve for special holy days and holidays, prepare properly for service, and arrive on time, dressed appropriately, for their assigned Mass. A two part training session is required. Ministers are mandated by the Archdiocese for service at St. Michael Parish for a period of 3 years. Mandates are renewable.

Policies and procedures for this ministry are outlined in the Extraordinary Minister of Communion Handbook.

For more information, please contact Pat Chuchla, at 708-873-4652 or via email at

NOTE: Those who wish to bring Communion to the Sick at home, in a nursing home or in a hospital, must undergo a separate six week training and are mandated specifically for this service. Contact Sr. Marietta Umlor at 708-873-4635 for more information on bringing Communion to the Sick.
