Designed specifically for laity, this manual offers practical tips and theological underpinnings of this Eucharistic ministry.

In the Episcopal Church, the term Eucharistic Minister is used to denote someone who assists the priest with administering the Eucharist, often handling the wine. Ely offers historical perspective on this ministry, a theological overview, practical tips, plus an invitation to engage in the spiritual dimensions of serving one's local congregation as a Eucharistic Minister. She concludes the book with a chapter on how to establish this ministry in a local parish.
