Training for Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers and Eucharistic Visitors

April 14 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
St. Stephen’s, Whiting, 180 Route 539
Whiting, NJ United States

Practice & improve your reading of the lessons & serving of the chalice. Leaders: Bruce Ashforth, St. Matthew’s Church, Pennington and Melissa Semmes-Thorne, Instructor and Lector Coach, Wenonah, New Jersey This workshop is intended to be a source of help and practice for those who participate in the ministries of Eucharistic Minister, Eucharistic Visitor, and Lector.  Participants will receive information based on sound Biblical theology as well as hands-on practice with seasoned professionals.  You may wish to stay for the entire day as you seek to expand the ministries that you provide to your church or you may focus on the ministry that you already engage in at the church.  Training will be based on the Diocese’s Manual for the Licensing of Lay Ministries which contains the most recent changes in the Canons of The Episcopal Church and requires periodic training for those persons called to these ministries. The morning session of the Licensed Ministries Training will be devoted to a workshop entitled Reading Aloud Effectively.  It is designed to give Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers the skills and techniques to help them read Scripture aloud and to assist the congregation in their understanding of the various texts.  A coaching session will be included. The afternoon session will enable Eucharistic Ministers and Visitors to practice administering the Chalice and Paten and to reflect on the theological and pastoral aspects of these ministries.  Sponsored by the Committee on the Priesthood. Lectors – 9 am to 12pm Eucharistic Ministers & Visitors – 12:30 to 3:30 pm Lunch will be provided. Registration     Register by April 11 online at https://tinyurl.com/y9b7r8ts or contact Mary Anne Clisham, 609 394-5281, ext. 10 or  mclisham@dioceseofnj.org
