The church needs you and your talents!
We look forward to meeting with you!
Ministers of the Word (Lectors):
Proclaiming the Scriptures at our Eucharistic celebration is a vitally important ministry to our people. The Word of God is embodied and comes alive for us now, through the Lector’s faith-filled proclamation.
Be a minister of compassion to our parishioners in grief. Assist the bereaved with their choice of readings, music, and assist at the funeral Mass. Serve as an adult Altar Server or Lector at the Funeral Mass. Or, just follow up with best wishes and prayerful support afterward. Whatever you can do, will bring Jesus’ comfort and consolation to others who are hurting.
Small Christian Communities Facilitators:
Our parish is blessed with small Christian communities. These groups consist of Parishioners who gather, once a month to read and reflect on the Gospel together and share their faith and the movement of God’s Spirit in their lives. All are welcome to join a Small Christian Community in your area.
Your talent could lie in decorating. The Floral Brigade plans and prepares the decorations and environment in Church for all our special feasts and celebrations throughout the year. Your insights, ideas and suggestions would be most welcome. If you cannot assist with actual flower arrangement and/or decoration, please sponsor the Brigade with financial support or actual flowers.
Extraordinary Ministers of The Eucharist:
Assisting in the distribution of the Eucharist at Mass; and/or bringing Communion to the homebound who cannot join us here at Mass is a way of participating in one of the most ancient ministries of the Church. Jesus nourishes us on Himself in this Sacrament of unity and love. Candidates for this ministry must be at least 15 years old, have received Confirmation and be in good standing with the Church.
Ushers / Greeters:
Greeting fellow worshipers before the celebration begins and tending to their needs while they are here is a way of bringing Christ’s personal touch – His Presence – to His people in a ministry of welcome and care.
“Greeters” welcome us as we arrive, distribute any special worship aid as we enter, and send us off with a bulletin and warm wish as we leave.
“Ushers” assist with seating, occasional Communion traffic and taking up the collection. Both are attentive to the needs of the congregation and assist should an emergency arise. Both men and women are welcome in this ministry.
Altar Linen and Guild Ministries:
Help launder/repair our altar linens, weekly or seasonally. Ensure that the table of the Lord is worthily set for His Presence and His people.
