Eucharistic Ministers are licensed according to Episcopal Church Canons by the Bishop of the Diocese of East Tennessee to administer the Consecrated Elements at the celebration of Holy Communion under the direction of the priest. At St. Christopher's the Eucharistic Ministers (LEM) administer the chalice. They also read the Prayers of the People and carry the Gospel in procession. St. Christopher's welcomes lay persons to share in this ministry. If you are interested in participating, please speak to one of the clergy.
