Eucharistic Visitor Training
May 25 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Beginning February 2022, the diocese will offer monthly workshops for Eucharistic Visitors. These learning sessions can serve as a resource for those trained to be Eucharistic Visitors and those preparing them. Whether you are a novice or seasoned Eucharistic Visitor, opportunities abound to learn more, develop or improve skills and become more proficient in how we serve God and the church.
How we become involved in the church’s ministry as a Eucharistic Visitor varies. For some, an inner sense tells us, “this is what I ought to do” for some, our clergy asks us about becoming involved in this ministry. Others may be requested by their priest, deacon, or warden to fill a need in the congregation. Beyond how we begin our involvement in lay ministry is God’s reality calling us to do so. Jesus’ words to his first disciples apply to us as well: “You did not choose Me, but I chose you.” [John 15:16]
Our day together will include conversations around What Does It Mean to Care, Small Group Role Play/Case Studies, Eucharistic Visitor Preparation, and Reporting and Tracking Eucharistic Visitations.
The workshops, convened and led by The Rev. Canon Nancy R. Holland, Deacon, will be via ZOOM from 9 am – 2 pm, with two short breaks and a 30-minute midday break.
