Liturgical Ministries

liturgical ministries

 

By virtue of baptism, each of us is called to minister to the needs of one another. One way to serve is through one of the Liturgical Ministries. To meet the spiritual needs of our community and to make our liturgies truly life-giving celebrations requires the gifts of everyone. Our hope is that you will prayerfully consider becoming a part of one of these ministries.

 

Altar Servers

This ministry provides members of the parish with a true opportunity to function as lay ministers by reverently assisting the celebrant and/or deacon during Sunday Mass and at special liturgies throughout the year.

 

Lectors

Lectors proclaim the Word of God and understandably so that all who hear may respond.

Musicians

The Ministry of Music provides music during weekend Masses, holy days, weddings, funerals and Reconciliation services. Parishioners are invited to share their musical talents with the rest of the congregation through this ministry.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

These lay people are sometimes referred to as Eucharistic Ministers.
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion serve by bringing communion to parishioners who reside in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or in their own homes and unable to get to church. They also may assist the priest in distributing the Eucharist at Mass.

Ushers

These ministers are sometimes referred to as Greeters. Being a welcoming community is very important to us. Ushers are the first face of the parish. They greet those coming into our church, offer assistance to those in need, distribute parish bulletins, take up the collection, and distribute other materials as needed.

Sacristans

Sacristans assist, facilitate, and provide support and coordination for other liturgical ministries. In addition, they make the necessary preparations for liturgical activities.
