Eucharistic Ministers

Church of St. Aidan of Williston Park, New York


St. Aidan's has approximately 140 active Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. They minister at all weekday and weekend Masses. In the past three years there has been an average of 6-8 new EMHC's each year. Anyone interested in becoming an EMHC attends the required Diocesan Training session, must have attended a Virtus Training class and has been background checked. They are installed on the Feast of Corpus Christi in June. During the fall, a mandatory Evening of Reflection and Renewal in Order is held to show the EMHC's an appreciation of their ministry and to address any issues.
