Lay Eucharistic Ministers: Lay Eucharistic Ministers (LEMs) are members of Saint Christopher’s who assist the priest in administering the sacrament of Holy Communion at the altar rail and in the pews for those who are unable to come to the altar rail. Saint Christopher’s presently has nine LEMs who rotate and serve at both the 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. services. We are also blessed to have a Lay Eucharistic Visitor who takes sacrament to the ill, infirmed and hospitalized members of the congregation.
Intercessors: The Eucharistic Ministers serve as intercessors in the reading of the prayers of the people, which are prayers of intercessor. The LEM who serves at the 8:00 a.m. service serves as the intercessor. One of the two LEMs at the 10:00 a.m. service serves as the intercessor.
Lectors: Lectors are volunteers from the congregation who read the New and Old Testament lessons each Sunday. One of the junior acolytes reads the Psalm between the reading of the New and Old Testament lesson. It is read responsively by half verse with the congregation.
