Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC) are practicing Catholics who have been commissioned by the parish to distribute Holy Communion during the Mass and at special liturgies. EMHCs are commissioned every two years in May, and a sign-up sheet is posted in the vestibule in April for those interested in renewing their service or becoming involved in this role. Prior to their commissioning, new ministers are asked to attend a training session. Commissioning will occur again in May 2018. EMHCs are generally scheduled to serve at one Mass approximately twice a month.  If you would like more information, please contact our ministry coordinator.

Lectors

Lectors are practicing Catholics, preferably age 16 or older, who are commissioned by the parish to share the Word of God at weekend Masses and at special liturgies. Existing and new lectors are commissioned every two (2) years and will be again in May 2018. Signups will be held in April. New lectors are asked to attend a training session prior to their commissioning. Generally, lectors are scheduled at a single weekend Mass and serve every 4-5 weeks of the year. Please contact us if you would like more information about becoming a lector in our parish.

Altar Servers

Altar servers assist the priest during Masses on the weekends, Holy Days, special liturgies, and at weddings and funerals. Servers may be young men and women in Grades 5-12 and adult men and women age 18 and over. A series of training sessions is required. Once a large enough group of students is assembled, the ministry coordinator schedules and communicates the dates and times of these sessions. Altar servers are assigned to one Mass on a given weekend and serve every 4-5 weeks depending on our volunteer pool. On Holy Days, servers may sign up in the Sacristy to assist, and they are contacted by the rectory when needed for funerals and weddings. If you would like more information, please contact:

Gift Bearers

Gift bearers represent the parish worshipping community by bringing gifts of bread and wine to the altar where the priest accepts them for consecration. This is one of the easiest and most important ministries to become involved in; attend Mass and carry the gifts down to the priest. It's a wonderful opportunity for families to serve together. Gift bearers are assigned to one of our weekend Masses and a rotating schedule is maintained. On Holy Days, gift bearers are asked to sign up in the Sacristy. For more information or to volunteer, please contact our coordinator.

Ushers

We are adult parishioners who assist in preparing the church for weekend Masses, Holy Days of Obligation, and special liturgies as announced. We assist parishioners with any needs surrounding Mass. We greet parishioners and visitors, assist those with special needs, help members to find seating within the church, conduct offertory collection, and distribute bulletins. As an usher, you are typically assigned to one Mass and serve every Sunday at your assigned Mass. A Head Usher oversees a schedule and manages logistics. On-the-job training provided! Please contact our coordinator for more information or to get involved.

Liturgy of the Word for Children

Liturgy of the Word for Children (LWC) makes the Word of God more accessible to children age 4 through Grade 4. LWC is offered at the 10:15 AM and 12:00 noon Sunday Masses from September - May. Children leave the church with our volunteers just prior to the Liturgy of the Word and return to their parents at the Liturgy of the Eucharist.  Adults or high school teens may volunteer to assist in this ministry. Because this ministry involves working with youth, volunteers who are 18 or older must meet the requirements for Protecting God's Children. Volunteers attend a single business meeting in late August. If you would like more information about LWC, please contact us.

Church Linens

Those involved in our linen ministry help our parish by laundering and ironing the Eucharistic linens for each week’s Masses. This is a home-based ministry, and is perfect for someone who wants to help the parish from "behind-the-scenes." Based on a rotating schedule, volunteers are asked to pick up dirty linens from the Sacristy following the 12:00 noon Mass on Sunday, and return them to the Sacristy or Rectory office—cleaned, folded and pressed—before the next Saturday evening Mass at 5:00 PM. Depending upon the size of our volunteer pool, a person is scheduled every 11-12 weeks. If you would like more information or would like to volunteer, please contact:

Greeters

Greeters welcome each and every person who enters our church prior to Mass. We have a goal to make worshippers feel like they belong and to encourage those entering to enjoy Mass. We also help answer simple questions for newcomers. We act as a “friendly face” to associate with our parish. This is a wonderful ministry for all ages, and we especially encourage families or ministry groups to serve together. Depending upon the size of our volunteer pool, greeters are scheduled every 6-9 weeks and for a single weekend Mass. Please contact our ministry coordinator if you are interested in being a greeter or have further questions.
