The liturgical ministries provide the opportunity to directly participate in the worship service.
Lay Readers – proclaim God’s word to his people by reading the Lessons and Psalms to the congregation from the Lectern and leading the Prayers of the People from the pews.
Lay Eucharistic Ministers – administer the elements (the consecrated bread and wine) at any celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
Lay Eucharistic Visitors – following a celebration of the Holy Eucharist, take and administer the elements (the consecrated bread and wine) to members of the congregation who by reason of illness or infirmity are unable to be present.
No special prior experience is required; only interest in these meaningful ministries. Lay Eucharistic Ministers and Visitors must be adult (defined as age 16 years or older) members of the congregation in which they serve.
