Lay Ministers and Chalice Bearers

Lay Ministers are the people of the Church who have been baptized. The ministry of lay persons includes bearing witness to Christ wherever they may be. They often participate in services with readings from the Holy Scriptures. Chalice Bearers assist in communion by following the Priest, who has the bread, and offering each person at the altar a sip from the cup.
