The sacraments sustain and strengthen the people of God to live in Christ and with one another as community. The principal sacraments are: Holy Baptism and Holy Eucharist. All baptized persons, including children, are welcome to receive Communion.
A Lay Eucharistic Visitor is an individual licensed by the diocese to distribute previously blessed elements of Holy Communion to persons unable to attend regular worship, such as shut-ins or people recovering from illness in hospitals. The bread and wine they carry act as a symbol of the unity of Christ’s Body, which transcends boundaries of time and space, providing a sense of connection to persons who might otherwise feel isolated. Contact: Ruth Blakley (727) 525–9419.
