Eucharistic Visitors

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them.”
Matthew 18:20

A Eucharistic Visitor is a layperson authorized to take the Consecrated Elements in a timely manner following a Celebration of Holy Eucharist to members of the congregation who, by reason of illness or infirmity, were unable to be present at the Celebration. A Eucharistic Visitor acts under the direction of the Member of the Clergy or other leader exercising oversight of the congregation or other community of faith.

A Eucharistic Visit is both sacramental and pastoral. It is a sacramental visit because we bear the sacraments of the bread and wine on behalf of the community at large as part of our ministry. At the same time we must be prepared to act pastorally to those we visit.

Eucharistic Visitors are trained and licensed. They must also submit to a basic background check and complete The Safeguarding Training required by the Diocesan Office.

Eucharistic Visits may take place in a home, hospital, rehab center or nursing home. A Eucharistic Visit will include prayer, the gospel reading of the day, comments about the sermon of the day, a confession of sin, the Lord’s Prayer, the sharing of Holy Communion and a closing prayer.  An approved order of worship is included in the basket with the elements for Eucharist.

The Eucharistic Visitor is commissioned at the end of a service with the following prayer:

Priest: In the name of this congregation, I send you forth bearing these Holy gifts, that those to whom you go may share with us in the body and blood of Christ.

People: We who are many are One body, because we share one bread, one cup.

Priest: May you carry the prayers of all of us.
