    020.2.4 Canon The Greater Services
    In common with all Chaplaincies possessing Apostolic Succession, the Unitarian Baptist Chaplaincy

    The Sacraments delivery
    In Christian chaplaincy or Fellowship, a clergy-person is someone who is authorized by EMMI to
    perform functions such as teaching of beliefs; leading services such as weddings, baptisms or
    funerals; or otherwise providing spiritual guidance to the community.

    Only a ordained person can office in any of our sacraments but they do not have to be a member
    of the clergy, a lay minister can perform as well excepted for the Eucharist.

    In Canon 020.2.4.4 with the exception of the sacrament of Holy Orders, clergy may not deny the
    spiritual Services to those who ask for them, provided that the reasonable discretion of the minister
    shall apply with regard to the choice of the time and appropriate place for their administration and
    according to the faith.

    Canon 020.3.3 Holy Anointing & Funerals
    There are two rites of anointing which comprise in this: Last Anointing at the time of death and
    Anointing for Healing.

    Canon 020.3.4 Holy Oils are available from EMMI Bishops to clergy of the Chaplaincy or
    Fellowship. In the case of the Oil of the Sick, a minister may bless oil when necessary, but shall  
    do so during the same service in which the oil is to be administered.

    The essential elements are:
  1. The intention of the minister to administer it and the intention of the recipient to receive the  
    Anointing
  2. To bring the comfort to the dying or ailing
  3. To ease the final transition of the soul from the physical body.

    EMMI requires the use of an accepted formula. The ordinary ministers of Holy Anointing are
    Ministers and bishops.

    At the funerals the ministers celebrant direct prayers and songs to the eulogy.

    A eulogy should include:

  1. Introduction
  2. Welcome
  3. Introduction
  4. Give your personal sentiments
  5. Memories
  6. Insights from the family and friends
  7. Close with a memorable song or poem
