Lay Eucharistic Visitors
Lay Eucharistic visitor is authorized to take the consecrated elements in a timely manner following a celebration of Holy Eucharist to members of the congregation who are not able to attend church in person. After the provision of Communion, that visitor will provide updates on the church functioning and allow those who are sick to remain connected with the church. A Daughter of the King accompanies each Lay Eucharistic Visitor for visits. Training for this ministry will be provided by the parish clergy.
Dedicated volunteers who are commissioned by the Priest to share the sacraments of Communion to those members who are unable to physically attend church. Often these are parishioners who are in assisted living, nursing homes or in their own homes.
Lay Eucharistic Ministers visit one time per month and seek to bring God’s presence to those who are homebound. The service most commonly used is the Provision of “Communion Under Special Circumstances” on page 396 in the Book of Common Prayer.
Training for this ministry will be provided by the parish clergy. Please get in touch to request Communion for a member of the church.
