Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC) are members of the lay faithful who are called upon and commissioned to assist in the distribution of Holy Communion either within the Eucharistic celebration or at another occasion such as a Communion Service or a visit to those in our community who are in nursing homes or homebound.

To “Rise Up Now!” and become an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, or to request ministry for yourself or someone else, please contact Fr. Thomas Herge: [email protected] / (614) 885-7814


2019 Training Schedule:

October 8, 2019 from  7:45 pm – 9:00 pm – registration closes September 10th at 4:30 pm
December 10, 2019 from  7:45 pm – 9:00 pm – registration closes December 10th at 4:30 pm

During these sessions, you will either be trained to Lector or serve as Extraordinary Minister as both training sessions will take place simultaneously. If you are interested in being trained for both, you will need to attend two different training sessions. The training sessions will be led by Fr. Thomas Herge, Deacon Klaus Fricke, and Deacon Bill Demidovich, who will prepare you to be certified for these ministries.
