Formerly called chalice bearers, these ministers are trained and licensed to service the chalice during Holy Communion. Eucharist Ministers also read the Psalms and Prayers of the People. Eucharistic Visitors are trained and licensed to take the Holy Eucharist on Sundays, major Holy Days, and when needed, to parishioners who cannot come to the church due to illness or other factors. Ministers offer a short prayer service along with Holy Communion.
