Acolytes/Eucharistic Ministers

Serving as an Acolyte/Eucharistic Minister is both an honor and service to God, enhancing the congregation’s worship services and passing the chalice at the altar.  Being involved gives participants an opportunity to participate in worship services, to connect with one another and to experience a stronger sense of service to God and the church.

Individuals who serve as Eucharistic Ministers receive training through a course offered by the Whitaker Institute and also receive instruction from their home congregation.  To receive a license they need to be approved by their Rector/Vicar/Priest-in-Charge.  To learn more about becoming an Acolyte/Eucharistic Minister, please contact Fr. John at 734.421.8451 or standrewslivonia@mi.rr.com.
