Eucharistic Minister/Visitor Training - O'ahu 

A training for those who want to be Eucharistic Ministers and/or Eucharistic Visitors will be held on Saturday, July 27, 2019, at The Cathedral of St. Andrew, Honolulu, in the Von Holt Room.  Training begins at 9:00 AM.  The Instructor will be the Rev. Giovan King, Rector at St. Christopher's Episcopal Church. 

Registration deadline:  Monday, July 22, 2019 

A Eucharistic Minister (EM) is a lay person authorized to administer the Consecrated Elements at a Celebration of Holy Eucharist. 

A Eucharistic Visitor (EV) is a lay person authorized to take the Consecrated Elements in a timely manner 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. 

Both EMs and EVs should attend the morning session, which will begin at 9:00 a.m. That session will last 2-1/2 hours. 

Those intending to be Eucharistic Ministers only, and not Eucharistic Visitors, can then leave. Those who intend to be Eucharistic Visitors will stay for the afternoon session, which will last until 3:30 p.m.  Lunch will be served to those who stay for the afternoon session. 

** Special Note 1:  Anyone may attend the training, but in order to be licensed as an EM or EV, a person needs to have the endorsement of the priest in charge of his or her congregation.  Once the training has been completed, you MUST apply for licensing.  The application can be found HERE.
