Sacristans – This group of parishioners takes care of cleaning the Sanctuary and Sacristy of the Church, laundering the linens, taking inventory of church supplies, setting the altar for Mass, cleaning up after Mass, may organize holy day colors and decorations, and anything else needed for celebration of the Mass. Keeps all Church items, such as cruets, chalices, linens, oils, processional crosses, and candles in good condition.
Altar Servers – All parishioners (who have received the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist) are invited to serve at the altar in this ministry.
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC) or Eucharistic Ministers (EM) – This important ministry provides ministers of the Eucharist at the weekend Masses. You must be 16 years of age and have received the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation. Some EMs choose to extend their duties as Ministers to the Sick or Homebound. They take Holy Communion once a week to those that can not attend Mass.
Greeters/Ushers – This group of parishioners welcome those joining in celebration at each Mass and attend to the safety and comfort of the congregation.
Ministers of the Word (Lectors) – A rewarding way to participate in our Sunday worship is to proclaim God’s Word as a lector.
Music, Cantors and Choirs – Each weekend Mass has, at least, one person to provide music and the sung parts of the Mass.
