There is nothing so ordinary (regular) in the Catholic Church as 'Extra-Ordinary Eucharistic Ministers' (EOEM).
I added the attached article because it provides references to actual rules.
I would like to offer the following commentary:
- Delegating the distribution of communion to the laity to hospitals etc causes problems. A person who is confined to a hospital or similar circumstance will not have the opportunity to go to confession. So, when a EOEM arrives, they will have peer pressure to receive. This will, I posit, increase the sacrilegious receipt of Holy Communion.
- If a priest is ill, I find it hard to believe that he would have sole responsibility for a parish.
- There is only one person who must receive communion at mass, the priest who is celebrating Mass. In this way the sacrifice is consummated. Laity do not need to receive communion.
- Regular confession is as needed as regular communion.
