"Extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion (emHCs) should receive sufficient spiritual, theological and practical preparation to fulfill their role with knowledge and reverence."

(Instruction: Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion Assisting at Mass and Communion of the Sick in the Diocese of Cleveland, 7)

EMHC's are formally recognized after they have participated in diocesan formation for this ministry; they are then commissioned in their parish or institutions by the pastor or his equivalent.
