Lay Eucharistic Visitors
Lay Eucharistic Visitors (LEVs) take the consecrated bread and wine from the altar at St. George’s to those who are unable to come to church. The liturgy shared with those who are homebound or in the hospital includes the Collect for the Day, a reading of the day’s Gospel, the Confession, the Lord’s Prayer, administration of communion, and the post-communion prayer. LEVs also try to provide some insight into the sermon that day, as well as bring news of what is happening at St. George’s. A visit by an LEV affirms for the homebound person or family that they are very much a part of the St. George’s community. If you or someone you know in the parish is unable to attend Sunday services, even for temporary hospitalization or recuperation, please consider scheduling a visit from an LEV. Simply contact the church office or Frances Rickard.
If you are interested in serving as a Lay Eucharistic Visitor, please contact Frances Rickard or Deacon John Brewer.
Parish Prayer List
Each week, the Prayers of the People at the 8:00 am service and the bulletin at the 10:30 am service include a list of people for whom prayers have been requested. If you would like to add yourself or someone else to the parish prayer list, either fill out a Prayer Requests & Comments card found in the pew and place it in the alms basket, or contact the church office. Please let us know the full name of the person, the reason for the request, and how long you would like them to remain on the prayer list (up to a maximum of 3 months, after which you can request that they be added again).
