Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Juniors can receive training to become Eucharistic ministers in the spring of their junior year and serve the St. Dominic school community during their senior year by assisting in the distribution of Holy Communion at all school Masses throughout the year.  
Juniors are invited to consider whether they wish to serve the St. Dominic school community in this capacity.  This is a responsibility which should not be taken lightly or without some prayer and thought.


A Eucharistic Minister must be:


A baptized and confirmed Catholic.

A practicing Catholic who attends Mass on Sundays.

Someone who values his/her faith and is not afraid to publically acknowledge it.

Someone who is reverent, showing proper respect for things of the faith and when in church. 

Someone who seeks to serve as an example to others of what it is to be a follower of Jesus.

Someone who understands and appreciates the importance of bringing Christ to others in the Eucharist.


Juniors who wish to serve in this capacity must do the following in the spring of their Junior year:


Complete the application to serve, sign it, and have a parent and a teacher sign it.

Write an essay about what your faith means to you and why you wish to serve in this capacity and present it with the application.

Obtain a copy of your baptismal certificate to be turned in with the application.

Arrange to meet with Mr. Fordyce and present the application and required paperwork to him in person.


All accepted candidates must attend the diocesan day of reflection and training for high school students which is held each year in March or April.  (Transportation to and from school will be provided on that day and students will return in time for dismissal and practices.).  See your Theology teacher with any questions you may have.
