Eucharistic Visitor Workshop
March 16 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
This four-hour workshop is for members of Knoxville-area Episcopal churches who are:
- New in their ministry as a Lay Eucharistic Visitor (EV)
- Veteran/experienced in their ministry as an EV for their parish
- Clergy who provide training and/or oversight for EVs for their parish
Whether you require initial training, want to supplement the training in your parish, or just want to sharpen your understanding and personal tool box, come join us.
Prior to the workshop participants are asked to:
- Discuss a call to ministry as an EV with their Rector/Priest-in-Charge and receive support for attendance to the workshop
- Procure and read A Manual for Eucharistic Visitors, by Beth Wickenberg Ely.
The 80-page text can be purchased in new or used print or electronic format through Amazon or Morehouse Publishing for less than $15. The book is a primer for the workshop. The instructors will be providing supplemental instruction and material.
Completion of the workshop is not a requirement for a license; however, before being licensed by the diocese to ministry as a licensed lay Eucharistic Visitor, lay ministers are required to:
- Provide endorsement from their Rector/Priest-in-Charge for practicing the ministry of Licensed Lay Eucharistic Visitor in their parish
- Complete/Update training in Safeguarding God’s Children as well as Safeguarding God’s People (go to LINK for details if needed)
Please bring a home communion kit from your parish.
The workshop will begin promptly at 9:00 AM ET and end at 1:00 PM ET. A light lunch will be provided.
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED – CLICK HERE – no later than Monday, March 11th. We will provide materials and a light lunch, so we need an accurate count.
