[quote=FrankvT]This may have been asked before but I couldn’t find a definite answer when I did a search.
- Are extraordinary ministers of holy communion allowed to clean the chalice after communion.I know deacons and acolytes(alter servers ?) are.
2)Are extraordinary ministers of holy communion allowed to retrieve and put back the chalice in the tabernackel?
I believe that according to the GIRM or RS EMHC may assist the priest or deacon if necessary. They may also assist the priest who is to consume the remaining Blood of Christ after Holy Communion if necessary.
Returning the Blessed Sacrament to the tabernacle is the proper task of the priest or deacon. It they cannot because of physical limitations then an EMHC may assist.
