Lay Eucharitic Ministers
Lay Eucharistic Ministers (LEMs) assist the Celebrant with the duties associated with the Episcopal service of Holy Eucharist. Those duties include: leading the congregation in the Creeds and Prayers, helping set the altar table and assisting with the distribution of the elements. The latter two duties are in close partnership with the acolytes.
Lectors read the Hebrew or Epistle text at services. Many parishioners serve as lector, and in recent years, we have welcomes the addition of teens in this role.
These ministries are rewarding and enrich our weekly services.
Those who participate in these ministries find it extremely rewarding. If you are interested in being a Lector or LEM, please contact Bill Wickham.
