Lector: Often called “readers,” lectors proclaim the Word of God at the Eucharist.
Altar Servers: This is a ministry for young people, usually up to the end of the teen years. It is open to both boys and girls. They are trained to assist the priest during the sacred rites.
Communion Ministers: Officially called Extra-ordinary Ministers of Communion, they assist with the distribution of communion at Eucharist.
Ministers of Hospitality (Ushers): They distribute the hymnals, take up the collection and assist those who may need some attention during the services.
Catechist: These are members of the parish who travel with another member of the parish who wishes to learn more about their faith. Often they are assisting those who have a desire to become Catholic.
Ministers of Communion to the Sick: The parishioners visit the shut in, bringing them the Blessed Sacrament on a weekly basis. Screening required.
Taize Prayer Group: The Taize prayer movement is focused on a tradition of meditative prayer that includes song and reflection. The Taize prayer group organizes regular liturgies for all who want to participate in this meditative prayer.
Children’s Worship: Children in the primary grades are invited to gather for the first part of the mass to celebrate together the Gospel message of the day. The leader prepares for each week of children worship. Screening required.
Choir: Our 11 a. m. mass on Sundays includes a choir that leads the congregational singing. New members are always welcome in the choir.
