Although we do not currently have a priest assigned to St. John’s, we can still assist those who are home bound due to illness or weather, or in the hospital or nursing home.
We have four members who are licensed Eucharistic Visitors: Bruce Cory, Jeff Davis, Anne Day Davis, and Dura Anne Price. We can come and offer prayer, communion, and anointing (the Book of Common Prayer states, “In cases of necessity, a deacon or lay person may perform the anointing, using oil blessed by a bishop or priest.”).
If the services of a clergy person are requested, we can also arrange to have an Episcopal priest or other clergy person (the Rev. Lisa Eye at Corbin Presbyterian has offered to help with pastoral care if needed) visit.
Please let any member of the vestry know if you desire a home or hospital visit. Members of the vestry are: Jeff Davis, Steve Gilbert, Donna Goff, Billy Hibbitts, Mary Swinford, and Doug Thelen. You can also contact the Eucharist Visitors: Bruce Cory, Jeff Davis, Anne Day Davis, and Dura Anne Price. You can also call the church office and leave a message on the voice mail. These are converted to e-mail and forwarded to a member of the vestry or a Eucharistic Visitor.
Do not let health issues or bad weather keep you from receiving the sacraments and prayers of the church! We are here for you!
