Liturgy


Altar Servers

Our members come from among the parish’s faithful men and women, boys and girls, who display a desire to participate in a more intimate way during the mass. The main role of the altar server is to assist the priest at celebrations of the liturgy. Training is provided.


Eucharistic Ministers

Our members serve at Sunday liturgies and Holy Days (i.e. Christmas, New Years, Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter). Eucharistic Ministers have the privilege and opportunity to make the moment of communion as personal as possible. Training is provided.


Lectors

Our lectors provide the spirit and breath to the Word of Scripture bringing the reading to life for those who hear it by giving it personality, tone and texture. They proclaim the Word at each Mass, every weekend. Schedules are prepared every two months, with special schedules for Christmas celebrations and the Easter Tritium.


Liturgical Arts


Music

This group helps the congregation enter into worship by leading in song. Instrumental and choral music moves peoples’ hearts so they may be open to one another and to God. The 10:00 a.m. choir uses a combination of guitar, piano and other assorted instruments. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. The 12 o'clock choir is more traditional, accompanied by organ and piano. Rehearsals take place Sundays, 10:30 a.m.


Pastoral Care

Volunteers bring the Eucharist to isolated or ill parishioners who cannot attend mass, including those who are housebound, as well as those in palliative care facilities, hospitals and nursing homes.


Ushers

Our ushers assist with ensuring the church’s physical environment is safe and set for each mass, greet and assist parishioner in seating, take up the collection and distribute church bulletins at the end of Mass.
