Extraordinary Ministers Of Holy Communion
During Mass, some members of the congregation are called to aid in the distribution of the precious Body and Blood of Christ. Other times, when parishioners are unable to attend Mass because of age or illness, some may nave the privilege of taking the Blessed Sacrament to those who desire to receive Communion at home.
Lectors proclaim the Work of God in the first and second readings and also read the parish intercessions at Mass. Lectors have a passion for Scripture and the ability to interpret and understand it.
Altar Servers assist the priest throughout the Mass. Their participation is needed for the processions, the prayers and the Liturgy of the Eucharist. It is a great way for boys and girls to become familiar with the Mass. Altar servers must be in the fourth grade or older.
Hospitality & Welcoming
Hospitality is part of the foundation on which all ministries are built. That is why this role is so important. It is through hospitality that guests receive information and assistance; it is also the means by which the collection occurs, the gifts are presented, and the parishioners are guided forward for distribution of the Eucharist.
Sacristans assist in the preparation of the worship space for liturgies. Responsibilities include the care and preparation of the sacred vessels, lighting of candles, placement of the gifts, and monitoring of ministry schedules before Mass.
