More Information about the Ministries
Ministers of Hospitality (Ushers) –
Ushers provide a sense of welcome to all worshipers. Ushers’ main duties include seating people, answering questions, and taking up the weekly offertory collection(s).
Lectors assist with the proclamation of the Word of God. These ministers must be able to proclaim the readings, prayers, and announcements clearly and effectively to the assembly.
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion –
Eucharistic Ministers assist the presider and the deacon with the distribution of the Body and Blood of Christ. All who serve in this ministry must be fully initiated into the Roman Catholic Church (i.e. having received the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Communion).
Altar Servers –
Altar Servers assist the presider throughout the Liturgy. This ministry is open to all people in the fourth grade or older who have received the Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, and Holy Communion.
Children’s Liturgy Teams –
The Children’s Liturgy Teams minister to our young people (ages K-6) during the 10:00 AM Sunday Liturgy during the school year. They break open God’s Word to young people during a separate Liturgy of the Word within Sunday Mass.
Art & Environment Committee –
The Art & Environment Committee members serve as the “beautifiers” of our worship spaces. They contribute their time, style, and sense of beauty to making our churches places that represent the Liturgical Seasons of the Church year, using Church documents as their guidelines.
Sacristans clean and prepare vestments and linens for the Sunday liturgies, set up for week-day Masses, and assist at funeral liturgies.
