Liturgical Ministries Training, Sunday, August 25, 3 p.m.
Liturgy is literally “the work of the people,” and it takes many people to make our worship each Sunday. If you have ever wanted to be more actively involved in the service as an Acolyte, Eucharistic Minister, Lector or Intercessor, this is your opportunity. This workshop is designed for those who are new to these ministries as well as for those who are already serving.
Acolytes: Youth in grade 4 and up serve as acolytes each Sunday at the 10:30 a.m. service. Acolytes lead the processions into and out of the church serving as torch and flag bearers and as crucifer.
Eucharistic Ministers: Eucharistic Ministers assist with the administration of the Eucharist, usually as a Chalice Bearer. They also help lead the service by reading lessons and by leading the Prayers of the People. Eucharistic Ministers must be confirmed members of the parish, age 16 & older, and licensed by the bishop.
Lectors and Intercessors: Lectors (lay readers) bring the word of God to life through readings from the Old Testament, the Psalms, and selected New Testament readings. Intercessors lead the Prayers of the People. Youth & adults may participate in this ministry.
Eucharistic Visitors: Licensed Eucharistic Ministers take Communion to the sick and home bound. They are called forward during the service and the congregation joins in a prayer sending them out.
