Liturgical Ministries


Welcoming everyone to proclaim and live the joy of the Gospel.

ACOLYTES/ALTAR SERVERS

Acolytes are young men and women, 4th grade and older, who have celebrated Holy Communion and who desire to serve God and God’s people. Altar servers lead processions, bear the cross, assist with the sacraments and sacred vessels, and serve at the altar

 

ADORATION

Adoration offers people the opportunity for prayer, silence and adoration as they reflect on their call to a deeper devotion to Our Lord and a more faithful living of the Christian life. This ministry ensures that a guardian is present whenever the Blessed Sacrament is exposed for adoration in the chapel.

 

ALTAR GUILD

The Altar Guild prepares the church, chapel, vestments and altar for the liturgies.

 

ALTAR LINEN

The Altar Linen Ministry provides clean linens to be used for the liturgical life of the parish. Ministers launder and iron purificators and corporals, while keeping an eye on the table linens on the altar. The Ministry will also support the liturgy by changing the candles and keeping up with supplies needed for Mass.

 

EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF HOLY COMMUNION

Extraordinary Ministers are nominated by the pastor and commissioned by the Archdiocese upon completion of a training workshop. They assist our clergy in distributing the Eucharist during the celebration of Mass. They also bring the Eucharist to the hospitalized and homebound.


FUNERAL MINISTRY

Members assist with the setup of the church environment and hospitality during funerals. They provide assistance with the arrangements before and after funerals, assist as Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Lectors, and Altar Servers.

 

HOSPITALITY

Ministers of Hospitality are often 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.

 

LECTORS

Lectors are men and women of at least high school age who proclaim the readings at various liturgies. Training opportunities are provided.

 

LITURGICAL DECORATORS

This ministry creates and maintains the visual expression for weekly and special liturgical celebrations. Parishioners with carpentry skills, artistic and design talents, and creative ideas are always welcome and eagerly embraced.

 

SACRISTANS

Sacristans prepare for the celebration of Mass by setting out sacred vessels and other items. Sacristans are previously certified and experienced Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion.
