Altar Servers are a group of dedicated young boys and girls who serve at the “Table of the Lord,” as well as at other liturgical celebrations. All of our servers have been baptized and have received First Eucharist in the Catholic Church. Anyone who is in the fourth grade or higher may be an altar server.
Sharing the Eucharist at liturgy is only one of the functions of this Ministry. In addition, Ministers are asked, if possible, to bring Eucharist to those individuals who are homebound. This Ministry requires training before beginning. Eucharistic Ministers usually sign up for a particular Mass based on desire and need.
Holy Spirit Choir
Holy Spirit Choir assists the congregation in prayerful songs during the major feasts of the church year (Midnight Mass and Holy Week Services) and at 10:00 a.m. Liturgy on Sundays from September to June. If you have a willing spirit, a love of music, and a desire to minister, you are welcome. Instrumentalists are also welcome to join. Rehearsals are held in the church on Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 9:30 a.m.
Lectors & Commentators
Lectors proclaim the Word of God in the First and Second Readings of the Mass. The commentator reads the announcements before the liturgy opens and offers the Prayer of the Faithful. Schedules are arranged to fit their desired Mass, as well as the need to fill all time slots. Future lectors are asked to try out. Continued inspiration is given through a yearly Evening of Recollection and an excellent Workbook for Lectors, which suggests ways of approaching the readings.
