Those who serve as liturgical ministers are motivated by the desire to be of love and service to the parish community during the celebration of liturgies on weekends, weekdays and special feasts. They become a team of ministers who enhance the prayerful celebration of liturgy.
Contact for all Liturgical Ministries except where noted:
S. Claire McNichol
The sacristan oversees the overall set up of vessels, linens, books and all that is necessary for the prayerful celebration of liturgy
Lectors and Readers proclaim the first and/or second reading in the liturgy as well as the prayer of the faithful. At times the lector also prays the responsorial psalm and psalm response.
EXTRAORDINARY MINISTER OF COMMUNION
Extraordinary Ministers of Communion assist in the distribution of the Eucharist under both species, the Body and Blood of Christ.
CHILDREN’S LITURGY OF THE WORD
A team of three or four adults work together to present the Liturgy of the Word for children about once a month during the 11 AM Mass. The scripture readings are adapted so that children may more easily understand the Word of God
Ushers assist and greet parishioners as they come into Mass, take up the offering, distribute bulletins and attend to handicapped members.
Boys and Girls from 4th grade and older are invited to serve at weekend Masses. The altar server assists the priest as the Mass is celebrated. The altar servers contribute to the prayerful celebration of liturgy. This is a wonderful way of giving service within the parish community and becoming more familiar with the Liturgy. Altar server training is provided by Mrs. Pat Lipperini
ART AND ENVIRONMENT MINISTRY
