Liturgical Ministries

ALTAR CARE

This ministry enhances the celebration of liturgies by decorating the church, altar, and sanctuary to reflect the current liturgical season.  These parishioners help to design and/or sew liturgical banners and place them in the Church.   

ALTAR SERVERS

Youth and adults of our Parish, both male and female, participate as Altar Servers at Masses, weddings, funerals and other liturgical celebrations.

CHOIR

Choir members offer musical support for the congregation, participating in the prayerful singing of songs during the various Masses and other liturgical events.

EXTRAORDINARY  MINISTERS OF HOLY COMMUNION 

Specially trained and commissioned parishioners assist the Parish Priests, as Eucharistic Ministers, in the distribution of Holy Communion at all Masses and other celebrations.  Candidates are approved by the Pastor, trained by the Diocese, and commissioned by the Pastor.  

READERS

Readers assist with proclaiming the word of God at Mass and other liturgical celebrations.  Lectors relate scripture in a public, reverent, and articulate manner, thus participating in one of the liturgical needs of the Parish Community.  Individual training is offered for all Readers.  They are also encouraged to study good techniques in proclaiming the Word of the Lord to the congregation.

USHERS

Ushers facilitate the seating and the distribution of materials during the celebration of Mass.  They gather the collections and form the Offertory procession.
