Extraordinary Ministers Of The Eucharist

The Liturgy Office of the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales says this about Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist:EMHC
Bishops, priests and deacons are the ordinary ministers of Communion.

If a large number are to receive Communion, the ordinary ministers will frequently need assistance in distributing Communion, so that the Communion rite is not unduly long.  These ministers serve Christ present in the assembly by ministering his Body and Blood to their brothers and sisters.

They also preserve the unity of the worshipping community by taking Communion to those members who are prevented by sickness, old age, or other cause from taking part in the gathering for Mass.

In accord with an ancient tradition, it is appropriate for Communion to be taken directly from the Sunday Eucharist to the sick and to those unable to leave their homes.

Holy Communion is under only one kind at the moment so the Rota for Extraordinary Ministers is temporarily suspended.
