Explore opportunities for service in the Liturgy


Ministry in the Liturgy is a sacred privilege in which we offer back to God what He given us; in service to Him and in service to others.

Whether participation is through “behind the scenes” preparation and planning or through a public role of service within the Mass, parishioner contributions help our liturgies to be truly life-giving celebrations. Please prayerfully consider joining one of these ministries. All of these ministries require training before assisting in the liturgy. Please contact the person in charge of a given ministry for details.

Adult Choir

Lectors

A lector proclaims the Word of God at Mass.

When the Sacred Scriptures are read in the Church, God himself speaks to his people, and Christ, present in his word, proclaims the Gospel. Therefore, the readings from the Word of God are to be listened to reverently by everyone, for they are an element of the greatest importance in the Liturgy.
