OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE
Serving in Worship
Eucharistic Ministers are trained at St. Michael’s and licensed by the Diocese and then scheduled monthly in the 4 services per weekend. They also are asked to volunteer at special services throughout the church year. Their purpose is to offer the chalice to the communicants after they have received the bread from the clergy.
Acolytes serve at the two main services each weekend. They are trained by a lay volunteer and scheduled twice per month. Seventh to twelfth graders are invited to the training.
Lectors (Lay Readers) are trained by the clergy and lay volunteers. They read from the lectern the biblical readings assigned for that Sunday.
