so like local preachers (lay speakers) in the methodist church (grin)

Lord we thank you for these loving servants, who brought your love and your gospel to a broken and dark land. We ask for your peace and love to minister to their families and friends. Amen

Karen Lea Siegel

Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis.
Requiescant in pace.

Rest eternal grant to them, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon them. May they rest in peace.


Many of the historic Churches with an Ordained Clergy also have lay ministers/pastors. They generally can not grant absolution or make the Sacrifice of the Mass, but are invaluable in working alongside the Holy Orders. My own Parish has them, and is enriched by their presence.




Lord in your mercy hear our prayer

(just an aside but I didn't realise that the Anglican church had lay pastors. how does that affect ministering the sacraments - such as Eucharist?)
