LEM & Acolyte

LEM & Acolyte
The Lay Eucharistic Minister (LEM), assigned to serve during a particular service, combines the traditional roles of Crucifer, Acolyte and Chalice Bearer, with responsibility for lighting and extinguishing the altar candles, carrying the Cross in procession, reading the prayers of the people, and serving during Holy Communion.
If an Acolyte is also assigned to serve, the Acolyte will assume from the LEM the role of carrying the Cross in procession, and will assist the LEM with the lighting and extinguishing of the altar candles.
Both LEM and Acolyte roles are assigned by agreed rota, no sign-up is required.
