In the healing name of Jesus…
So begins the sending forth prayer of the Eucharist visitors near the close of many of our celebrations of the Holy Eucharist. Eucharistic visitation is a special ministry of lay persons called by God and licensed by the Bishop. It is the ministry of taking the Sacrament, consecrated at a celebration of the Holy Eucharist, to members of the congregation who, by reason of illness or infirmity, are unable to be present at the Celebration. Many have been enriched by this sacramental ministry, both those who take the sacrament and those who receive it.
If you know of someone who cannot attend the services at the church and would like to have the Eucharist brought to them, or if you would like to be a part of this extraordinary ministry, please contact the office (648-5497).
Eucharistic Ministers invite others to affirm their faith in the presence of Christ through communion. They are lay persons licensed to administer the consecrated elements at a celebration of Holy Eucharist. They normally serve at the altar from 1 to 3 services per month. Training is provided by the clergy.
Lectors read the scripture and prayers during church services. Lectors serve an average of once a quarter. Training is provided. Contact Dave Hepner
If you currently participate in one of these ministries and would like a copy of the current roster, please contact Dave Hepner.
