Lay Ministries

Acolytes
Ascension has an active acolyte program for our children, youth and adults. Acolytes are trained as torchbearers, banner carriers, crucifers and servers. Acolytes serve at regular weekly services and at special services.  
Altar Guild
Members of the Altar Guild prepare the altar for Sunday and special liturgies. Members are part of a team and serve in rotation, about every six weeks.
Lay Readers
Lay Readers are trained for reading the scriptures at Holy Eucharist and other services.
Lay Eucharistic Ministers
A Lay Eucharistic Minister is a person authorized to assist the priest and to administer the wine from the chalice at a celebration of Holy Eucharist. 
Lay Eucharistic Visitors
A Lay Eucharistic Visitor is a person authorized to take the consecrated elements to members of the congregation who, by reason of illness or infirmity, were unable to be present at the celebration of Holy Eucharist. 
Other Lay Ministries
Parishioners are encouraged to serve as greeters and ushers.
