HOW ARE YOU BEING CALLED? Each program and ministry of the Church keeps Jesus at the center and meets you where you are. We have additional opportunities to learn and serve through our parish family and community for adults and teens. Help others benefit from these great programs and ministries by being an active part of your parish. Express your love of faith with these ministries:
When the Church comes together in the liturgical assembly to celebrate the Mass, members of the congregation do not gather simply as a crowd. They gather in a variety of ministries and roles as well. These ministries and roles listed below, carried out by members of the church, are a significant part of the Mass and sacramental celebrations. If you would like to be involved in any of the ministries listed below, please contact the individual Parish Offices.
Lectors—Lay person, teenager through adult, who proclaims the Word of God at Mass. Lectors read the first and second readings, along with the intercessions (unless a deacon is at Mass).
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion—Confirmed Catholics of high school age thru adult who help distribute the Body and Blood of Christ to their fellow parishioners at Mass.
Altar Attendants (Servers)—Kids and adults who serve the entire assembly by their example of prayer and by assisting the priest and ministers during the Mass.
Hospitality Ministers—Open to any age group. They greet and welcome people as they arrive for Mass, hand out programs if need be, and assist with any special needs of the assembly during Mass. Hospitality Ministers also help with collections (where applicable), but those helping with the collection should be at least 7th grade or older.
Sacristans—Lay person, seventh grade through adult, who arrives early and prepares the wine, hosts, and all necessary vessels used for Mass.
MUSIC MINISTRY Our cantors and choirs sing regularly at Sunday Masses and special liturgies throughout the year. Instrumentalists are strongly encouraged to share their talent with our parish family. Instrumentalists can play regularly at Mass or can be contacted only for special feasts and occasions.
If you are interested in joining our music ministry, please contact one of the Tri-County Catholics Music Directors.
