Lay Eucharistic Visitors take the consecrated bread and wine to parishioners who are ill, homebound or in nursing homes. LEV’s receive special training and are authorized to conduct a brief service of Holy Eucharist at the person’s place of residence.
Because of the qualifications required, there is an application and interview process for both Lay Eucharistic Ministers and Lay Eucharistic Visitors after approval by the Rector. They must also be licensed by the Bishop of the Diocese of Southwest Florida.
