Members of the Church of the Ascension who provide communion to those parishioners who are unable to attend services at the church are called Lay Eucharistic Visitors, or LEVs. Communion can be delivered either on a scheduled, regular basis or on an exceptional basis. Those to whom communion is delivered generally belong to one of three groups:
- Home-bound members who reside in a house or apartment
- Members who live in a senior retirement home
- Members who are temporarily in hospitals or rehab facilities
Visits to members at home or in retirement homes can ordinarily be scheduled in advance, at the convenience of the LEV and the member. Once an LEV is paired with a member at home, scheduling is best arranged between them and is generally flexible. Visits to members in hospitals or rehab facilities are less predictable and often spontaneous.
