Frequently Asked Questions
regarding
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
THE ORDINARY AND THE EXTRAORDINARY
EUCHARISTIC MINISTER.


Q. 1. What is the difference between an ordinary Eucharist Minister and an Extraordinary Eucharist Minister?

A. 1. First of all, there is no such thing as an Extraordinary Eucharistic Minister. The position of the layperson who distributes Holy Communion alongside with the priest is called the "Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion."

The term "Ordinary" refers to someone who is ordained. A Bishop is often called an “Ordinary” because he is the ordained spiritual leader of a Diocese. The word “Extraordinary” means “outside ordination.” It refers to a minister who has not received the Sacrament of Holy Orders.
