Liturgical Ministries

Mass Coordinator / Sacristan

Each weekend liturgy needs a coordinator/sacristan who makes sure everything and everyone is ready for the community celebration. The coordinator also takes care of tidying up after the celebration.

Liturgy of the Word for Children

Leaders offer children an age appropriate lesson based on the readings for the day. They leave at the start of the Liturgy of the Word and return in time for the Eucharistic Prayer. English is at 10:30 A.M. Mass; Spanish is at 12:00 P.M. Mass.


Ushers & Greeters

Ushers are the wonderful folks who help you find a seat in church and who arrange for the collection to be taken at each Mass. Greeters meet folks as they are arriving and some stick around to hand out bulletins at the end of liturgies. Any of these welcoming folks can answer questions or find answers for most questions that might arise.

Altar Servers

Altar Servers assist the presider at Mass by setting the table, lighting candles, carrying the cross, candles, holding books, etc. This ministry is open to boys and girls in Grade 5 or older. Training is provided and servers are assigned a schedule.  In addition to weekend and weekday Masses, there are occasionally extra times, for weddings, funerals, or baptisms.


Eucharistic Ministers

Eucharistic Ministers serve by distributing the Body and Blood of Christ at parish liturgies. They also bring Holy Communion to the home-bound. Eucharistic Ministers must have received the sacrament of Confirmation. Training is provided several times during the year.
