question for my readers

Has anyone else noticed their priest or deacons "doing the dishes" recently.
This is regarding the end of the indult for purification of the sacred vessels after Communion which has allowed the extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion to help cleanse cups and plates.
I have noticed it since the beginning of January and am wondering if the bishops have instructed the change nationally.  I know Gerald has posted on the response from the LA Archdiocese.

Kale, next time you are at Mass look on the Extraordinary ministry board and you'll see a laminated instruction sheet that looks like it's from the Bishop on what they should be doing. It seems that there are a few loop holes that a person could play with as far as what an acolyte is or is not though.
