This workshop will prepare those nominated by their clergy to act as Lay Eucharistic Visitors to those hospitalized, confined to rehabilitation and nursing institutions, as well as the homebound. Content will include Eucharistic theology, role-playing for Eucharistic visits, and information about required specific Safe Church training. Those who participate in this workshop, with their rector/clergy-in-charge's support, can then be licensed by the Bishop's Office as Lay Eucharistic Visitors.
Clergy must register their EV candidates by contacting the Mercer Office in writing or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Written permission to serve as an EV is required for all participants. Proof of their completion of required Safe Church training from 2019 or later will be required for their final licensing. Registrations must be received by November 16th.
There is no fee for this event. Space is limited. Another session is being planned for Spring 2023. Questions? Contact Diane Muscarella at 516-248-4800 Ext. 140 or at email@example.com.
