How do I get a certificate to be a parish lector and/or extraordinary minister of Holy Communion?

It is the pastor of the parish, either himself or through his delegate (Coordinator of ministries), who calls a person to the ministry of lector and/or extraordinary minister of Holy Communion. After preparation and formation have been given, the pastor/coordinator of ministries…discerns with the candidate readiness to provide this ministry for the community. A letter to that effect naming the candidate(s) is sent to the Office for Christian Worship. The Office will prepare the certificates and forward them to the parish.
