Like to be involved in the Liturgy Ministries?

We would love to see lots more people volunteer for the Liturgical Ministries, especially our secondary school-aged youth. Be involved as:

  • a Reader who proclaims the Word
  • an operator of the Mass PowerPoint presentation who helps keep people engaged in the action of the Mass
  • a Special Minister of the Eucharist who distributes communion
  • the Offertory Procession where you bring the gifts to the Altar
  • a Sacristan who prepares the sacred vessels and resources for use at Mass
  • a Welcomer who distributes the Newsletter and greets all who arrive with a warm welcome

If you’d like to be involved,
– contact the Parish Office by email or
– complete our Liturgy Ministries – New Member form
