- Seeking Lay Eucharistic Visitors
The ministry of the Lay Eucharistic Visitor is to provide the sacrament of Holy Communion to those who are hospitalized, homebound, and in long-term care. It is an extension of our Table – some of the bread and wine that is blessed each Sunday is reserved to take to those who cannot be with us in worship. We would like to expand this pastoral care ministry with new volunteers. If you are interested in being part of this transformative ministry please contact The Rev. Angela Cortinas.
