Lay Eucharistic Visitors Workshop

Registration open soon.

Do you offer the ministry of eucharistic visiting? This is a workshop for lay people to develop and increase confidence and skills in offering this important ministry. The workshop is 3.5 hours long and includes:

  • developing skills in pastoral listening,
  • preparing for visits,
  • making visits,
  • debriefing and reporting with the lay eucharistic team and priest in charge. 

Light refreshments will be offered in the morning.

We will focus on many practical details as well as prayerful preparation. This workshop can be taken in preparation for commissioning and licensing to this ministry.

Date/Time: June 13th - 9:00am - 12:30pm
Place: Holy Trinity Cathedral, 514 Carnarvon St. New Westminster, BC
Registration: coming soon

Instructors: The Reverends Laurel Dahill and Jessica Schaap

Background: This workshop began as a pilot project to offer training to lay ministers who bring home communion and was offered in the Archdeaconry of Lougheed in late 2019.  Seventeen people from four parishes took part in this first workshop. The feedback from the project was positive and plans are in place to offer the workshop in each of the archdeaconries over this year.
