Altar Servers are chosen from among the faithful who display a desire to serve in a more intimate way during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and perform the assigned duties with attention, dignity, and reverence.
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
In order that the faithful, who are in the state of grace and who, with an upright and pious disposition, wish to share in the Sacred Banquet, may not be deprived of this sacramental help and consolation, it has seemed appropriate to the Holy Father to establish extraordinary ministers, who may give Holy Communion to other faithful.
The ministry of Gift Bearer is a time during the Mass when anyone, no matter what your level of involvement, can actively take part in the Mass. No special training is required to serve in this ministry, just your commitment to serve at any given Mass of your choosing while dressing in you “Sunday’s best!”
The Ministers of Hospitality welcomes our parishioners at all weekend Masses and other liturgical celebrations. The ministers also prepare the presentation of the gifts, the collection, ensure an orderly Communion procession and distribute the weekly bulletin and programs for the liturgy.
The ministry of Lectors calls us to be servants of the Living Word of God. In proclaiming the readings at the liturgy, the lector does more than simply read. A lector’s spirituality must include an understanding of Holy Scripture as God’s Living Word made present to mankind throughout history, but most fully present in the person of Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh.
The purpose of the Music Ministry is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through song. Ministers encourage believers in their walk with Christ, lead the congregation in worship, provide an avenue through which individuals may share their gift, serving in an integral part of the worship.
