Liturgical

Liturgy is “the work of the people.” Following Jesus command, “Do this in memory of me,” liturgy is something we do. . . together. Good liturgy engages the entire community. The core of ministry is the assembly who accept the responsibility for bringing full, conscious and active participation to the liturgy. They are willing to step forward and proclaim a reading, minister holy Communion, sing in the choir, attend to others. All are welcome and all are needed!

Those who have completed the Sacrament of First Communion and attend mass regularly may be trained to assist the priest at Mass. Children must be at least in 5th grade and can provide their First Communion certificate. Adults are also welcome to join. Training sessions for new recruits are held twice a year, with additional training sessions held as needed.

Music plays an essential role in the worship life of a parish:

  • To encourage active, conscious participation by the entire assembly
  • To enliven with music the liturgical texts, as they were meant to be sung
  • To preserve our centuries of heritage as more recent music is added

The Music Ministers support and lead the entire assembly in the sung parts of liturgies, as well as offer unique contributions as a cantor, part of a choir, or an instrumentalist.

When people come to church, they experience not only the service, but the people associated with the church. We want the experience to be warm and welcoming. Our ushers are a part of that experience. They communicate a sense of belonging to the parishioners and are an important extension of the church and the Catholic family.

The Ministry of the Ushers of the Church includes the responsibilities of:

  • welcoming the assembly at Masses,
  • assisting in the seating of the assembly especially for those parishioners with special needs
  • taking up the collection organizing the communion procession
  • distributing the bulletin at the end of mass
  • other duties as deemed necessary by the celebrant, liturgy team, or any parish group who needs the assistance of this group.
