Eucharistic Ministers and Lectors

Baptized parishioners assist clergy at the altar during the Holy Eucharist as Eucharistic Ministers. They help distribute bread and wine, and perform other liturgical functions.  After training (and licensing by the Bishop) Eucharistic Ministers are added to the regular rotation of church services.  Eucharistic Lectors assist at services by reading scripture and prayers.  After training, they join the regular rotation of church services.
