Eucharistic Minister/Visitor Training - O'ahu 

A training for anyone who wants to be a Eucharistic Minister and/or Eucharistic Visitor will be held on Saturday, October 3, 2015, at The Cathedral of St. Andrew, Honolulu, in the Von Holt Room. The trainer is the Rev. Giovan King. 

A Eucharistic Minister is a lay person authorized to administer the Consecrated Elements at a Celebration of Holy Eucharist. A Eucharistic Visitor 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.  For more information on these roles and other licensed ministries, visit the Licensed Ministries webpage HERE.

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. 

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. 

This training is especially for persons on O'ahu. Trainings for the Neighbor Islands will be forthcoming in the near future. People from Neighbor Islands may attend this training, but the airfare will not be covered from the diocesan budget. 

Deadline to register is Monday, September 28, 2015, or when the maximum number of registrants has been reached.
