Liturgical Ministries

Altar Servers
Altar Servers play an important role in enhancing and enriching our liturgical and sacramental functions. They provide for a smooth flow of the services by holding the book to the presider, preparing the altar and assisting in the gifts of bread and wine. Boys and girls who have received First Communion may be altar servers.  Adults are also welcome to become Altar Serves.

 

Lectors
Lectors are called to proclaim with clarity and grace the Word of God. Through their gifts and talents of preparing the readings in advance, learning proper pronunciation of names and places, articulating well with good tone and pacing, they bring to life the  Scripture and give meaning to the General Intercessions. Proudly they carry in procession the Book of God’s Word.
There is always a need for good Lectors. 
Some training is required. 

 Eucharistic Ministers
What more wonderful way is there to serve God than to share the Body and Blood of Christ with your parish community during Mass or at the home of the elderly, infirm or ill?  Ministers of Holy Communion, more commonly referred to as Eucharistic Ministers, clearly identifies a person as one who desires to serve God’s people and continue the mission of Christ to His disciples. If you are interested in becoming a Eucharistic Minister, some training is required.


Ushers
Ushers play an important role in greeting and welcoming parishioners, guests and visitors, directing and seating them, assisting the disabled, providing emergency care, distributing bulletins and collecting the Offertory donations. Please consider becoming an Usher if you enjoy interacting with people.
