The worship service and the ministries associated with it are the largest responsibility in any church. The Rector handles the look, feel, scheduling–in other words, all aspects worship. Here following you will find simple definitions of the primary ministries that an Episcopal service entails.
Acolytes assist the priest at the altar, bear the candles that accompany the cross and other duties required during the service. Call the church office at (518) 891-3605 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Chalice Bearers assist the Priest at Communion; offers the cup at the altar rail to communicants.
Laying on of Hands
Laying on of Hands is available at the front of the church on the second and fourth Sundays of every month. Call the church office at (518) 891-3605 or email email@example.com
The Crucifer carries the cross during services. He or she leads the choir and clergy as well as accompanying the gospel reading. The crucifer processes out of the church at the end of the service followed by the choir and clergy.
Lectors are assigned to read one of the lessons or the prayers during the 7:45 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. service.
