Lay Eucharistic Ministers

The Lay Eucharistic Ministers (LEMs) at Christ Church are trained and licensed to assist the clergy during liturgical services.  Our tasks include reading Old and New Testament lessons, assisting in the Gospel processions, leading the recitation of the Nicene Creed and the Prayers of the People, and serving the chalice at communion. Any parishioner confirmed in the Episcopal church over the age of sixteen may volunteer for this important ministry.

At the 7:45 a.m. Sunday service and at other smaller services, LEMs may also act as the acolyte. LEMs also serve at special services such as Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Vigil.  We may also be asked to participate in the liturgy for weddings and funerals. 

Any parishioner confirmed in the Episcopal church over the age of sixteen may volunteer for this important ministry.  Anyone interested in becoming an LEM should contact Rev. Lisa Zaina or Allison Roulier.
