The Very Reverend Ruben Buller, Director of the Office of Liturgy, is featured in the training video.

Once the video has been viewed, the pastor or parochial vicar of the parish that has been designated by Bishop Glen John Provost, will commission the newly trained and renewed Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion for a three-year period, valid only between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2019.

The training is mandatory for all those not in Holy Orders or Instituted Acolytes who assist at Mass, in institutions (hospitals or prisons) or to the homebound with the distribution of Holy Communion.
