Liturgical Ministries

Every weekend, our four parish liturgies are blessed by the time and talents shared by over 80 volunteers.  They serve at the altar, sing and play in the choirs, proclaim the Word of God, distribute the Eucharist, help with seating, collect our offerings, operate the sound system, prepare content and run our Audio-Visual equipment, bring up the gifts, distribute the bulletin, and decorate the sanctuary and nave.   New volunteers are always welcome!    

Email  [email protected] for more information, or to volunteer.

Altar Servers

Altar servers are individuals who arrive 15 minutes before the Saturday/Sunday Masses and assist in preparation. During the Mass, the altar server carries the processional cross, holds the prayer book for the priest and sets up and takes down the altar for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.  If you are interested in becoming an altar server, contact Blanche Comeau at [email protected]
Training is provided.

 

Reader/Proclaimer of the Word

The reader or proclaimer of the Word possesses an important responsibility. The individual prayerfully prepares and practices the reading ahead of time at home.
