Lay Eucharistic Ministers
St. Mark's has a dedicated group of lay ministers who are licensed by the Diocese of Southwestern Virginia to serve at the altar. Their duties include everything from serving as acolyte at the 8 a.m. Eucharist, to assisting with the distribution of communion. At each service our LEM leads "The Nicene Creed" and "The Prayers of the People", eloquently representing the voice of the laity in leading the congregation prayer.

Lay Eucharistic Visitors
Lay Eucharistic Visitors are loyal, active members of our parish who are willing to take the Sacrament from the altar directly to the homes of parishioners who are not able to be in church with the worshiping congregation at 10:30 on Sundays, such as shut-ins or people recovering from illnesses. The same consecrated bread and wine used on the altar is taken to homes, together with a short service of administration (and a short visit, if desired). The bread and wine they carry act as a symbol of the unity of Christ's Body. Anyone wishing to have the Sacrament brought to him or her should call the church office by Thursday morning prior to the Sunday service.
The Lector schedule for St. Mark's is prepared by the Lector Chair and includes confirmed laity who are interested in reading the scriptures aloud to the congregation at the 10:30 service and at special services.
