Liturgy Roster

Liturgy Roster November 2022 through to January 2023

The Liturgy Roster for November 2022 through to January 2023 is now ready.
The Roster will be made available in the following ways:

  • Use the link provided to you in your Roster email. With all the data breaches we’ve seen recently, it is probably unwise to make the online roster available through this website. Consequently, all those involved in the Liturgy Ministries have been sent an email with the links.
  • You can also collect a physical roster from the Sacristy.
  • You can view your roster in the ZenShifts App
  • Each Friday those on the roster for the weekend will receive a sms message or a Zenshits reminder.
  • New people having attended training will be swapped into the new roster as appropriate.

Christmas & New Year

With Christmas and New Year covered during this roster, people have been allocated to the various Masses for Christmas Eve (6pm, 9pm & midnight) along with New Year’s eve (6pm & midnight). Both of these fall on a Saturday this year.

Organising swaps

If you find you are unable to attend your rostered Mass, please use the following to organise your swap:

  • use the WhatsApp app to let others in your ministry that you are unavailable and need a swap. See the Roster Email with links to join the WhatsApp groups. Responses are monitored & ZenShifts is updated.
  • Organise your swaps at the training sessions through November & let the Liturgy Committee know by using the WhatsApp app or by contacting David personally.
