Leading a Communion & Word Service

In case a priest is not available, any trained Eucharistic Minister could lead a Communion & Word Service in lieu of a Mass. Here's how you do it:

You start with the Sign of the Cross.
Read the Opening Prayer.
Read all of the Readings.
The leader has the option of giving a short reflection, but this isn't necessary.
Pray the Our Father.
Exchange the Sign of Peace.
Go to the Tabernacle to get the ciborium with hosts and distribute communion.  Then return the ciborium to the tabernacle.
Conclude with the Closing Prayer and the Sign of the Cross.
