Lay Eucharistic Visitor & Lay Eucharist Minister Training

Would you like to experience communion more deeply? Would you like to help our congregation in important ways? Please consider becoming – or refreshing your training as – a Lay Eucharistic Visitor (LEV) or Lay Eucharistic Minister (LEM)!

LEVs work in pairs to bring communion and connection to parishioners at home. There are two upcoming opportunities for training (or re-training) as an LEV:

  • The first option is coming up next Saturday, February 11th, from 10am-12pm in the Sanctuary
  • The second option is Thursday, February 16th, from 12-2pm in Cary Lounge (with lunch
    provided, and Zoom available)

LEMs help serve communion in worship services, and there is a training (or re-training) on Saturday, February 25th, 10am-12pm in the Sanctuary
Both are profound ministries, which let you deepen your own experience of Eucharist while sharing your time and talents. No previous experience is required. If you do have previous experience, please
still attend a training for updates. Contact Rev. Emily to RSVP, ask questions, or learn more.

Most faith traditions have some form of meditation or contemplation.

Our group focuses on Centering Prayer, a surrender method of meditation, or contemplative prayer, that reaches back to the early days of Christianity.

No previous meditation experience is required, and newcomers are always welcome! For more information, or to find out how to access online sessions, please contact the Office.
