Eucharistic Visitor Application

Eucharistic Visitor is a lay person authorized to take the Consecrated Elements following a Celebration of Holy Eucharist to members of the congregation who, by reason of illness or infirmity, were unable to be present at the Celebration. A Eucharistic Visitor should normally act under the direction of a Deacon, if available, or other member of the Clergy in that congregation. Training may take place in a congregation, with assistance from diocesan leaders or through diocesan trainings when available.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Reserve Sacraments may not be distributed by a deacon or lay minister  within the context of a church service, whether weekday or weekend, when a priest is absent.

Specific requirements for this ministry:

1. Background check

Letter from IntelliCorp
Authorization to Release Information

2. Completion of Safeguarding God’s People training

3. Understanding of the “Two by two” visitation policy
