Liturgical and Music Ministries

Altar Servers

Our parish altar servers are children (grade 4 and above) and adults who assist the celebrant in the Sunday celebration of the liturgy, as well as on holy days. Altar servers carry the cross and candles in procession; they hold the Missal for the celebrant; they prepare the altar for the Liturgy of the Eucharist, and they help receive the gifts of bread and wine. Altar servers must be able to take direction, they should be able to anticipate what needs to happen in the liturgy, and they need to be able to act in a dignified manner. For more information about this ministry, please contact Scott MacDonald.

Lectors

Lectors are entrusted with the work of proclaiming the Sacred Scripture to those assembled at the Sunday Eucharist. Lectors also raise the community’s prayer to God by leading the Prayer of the Faithful. Individuals interested in this ministry must possess the ability to proclaim the sacred texts intelligibly and comfortably. They must also possess the desire to share the Word with others as well as a willingness to grow in understanding of the scriptures. For more information about this ministry, please contact Letitia Howland.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion assist with the distribution of the Lord’s Body and Blood at Mass. For more information about this ministry, please contact Jenny Jones.

Music Ministry

The parish choirs and instrumental ensembles support the liturgical assembly in song at our 9:30, 11:15, and 6:00 p.m. Sunday liturgies as well as on major feast days throughout the year. The choirs are open to new singers and instrumentalists at any time. For more information or to schedule an audition, please contact Richard Clark.
