Liturgical Ministries

Liturgical Ministries

Altar Servers

Altar Servers carry the processional cross and candles. The servers assist the presiders and other ministers at the altar. This ministry is open to 7th-9th graders with training occuring each Spring for students who are interested in becoming an altar server. 

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are persons of faith who represent the community by sharing the Body and Blood of Christ with fellow members of the community during the communion rite, so that all may eat and drink together. 

Greeters/UshersGreeters/Ushers

Greeters/Ushers are ministers of hospitality welcoming all who enter our doors at Mass. They distribute order of service cards, take up the offertory collection, assist during the preparation of gifts, clean up after the liturgy and assist members of the assembly with seating and other needs. 

Lay Leaders of Prayer

Lay Leaders of Prayer are men and women called forth from the community to receive special training in order to serve as leaders of prayer on behalf of the community. They conduct weekly Communion services.     

Lectors

Lector
Lectors are the "official ministers of the Word of God." They proclaim God's Word to us at all liturgies. Lectors should possess strong speaking skills, a deep love of the scriptures and a desire to share the Word with energy and enthusiasm. 

Sacristans

Sacristans assist in the many tasks that are necessary to ensure that the sacred space and materials are ready for use by the community as they come to celebrate the rituals of the church. Sacristans help insure the liturgy run seamlessly, prayerfully and smoothly.
