The most important ministry, as each of us ministers to each other. We do this through our prayers, singing, hospitality, & communicating. By virtue of your Baptism, you are automatically enrolled in this ministry. How about becoming a more active member through your participation in all the parts of the Liturgy that belong to you.
People who have a desire and ability to proclaim the Word of God each week. A good clear speaking voice as well as an understanding of the Scriptures is important.
People who have a deep love of the Eucharist and are specially commissioned to distribute Communion at the weekend liturgies. Diocesan guidelines state that you must be in your 16th year. If interested contact Sr. M. Valerie Schneider SND or Deacon Jerry Ziemkiewicz.
Adults and students in Grade 4 through High School serve in this ministry at present. Their principal function is to assist the priest during the liturgy, as well as lead the processions.
Ministers of Hospitality. (Greeters/Ushers)
These include the Greeters who help us feel welcome as we first enter the church, making sure that we also have what we need to better participate in our liturgies and help take up the collection during the liturgy.
These specially trained singers help lead the sung prayer during Mass. Their primary role is to proclaim the Responsorial Psalm of the Liturgy, as well as the Gospel Acclamation, the Communion Song verses, any other Litanies there may be, and be a support to the singing. If interested contact Sr. M. Valerie Schneider SND
A Choral group who generally sings at the 10:30am Sunday Liturgy and aids the Assembly in two ways: help to lead and enhance the Assembly’s singing; provide meditative music at certain times in the Liturgy. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings at 7:30-9:00 pm throughout the year. If interested call Sr. M. Valerie Schneider, SND.
The choir consists of both men and women who are available during the day, mostly in the morning, and offers song support to the families and friends during the funerals here. Rehearsals are usually an hour before the funerals when possible.
Instrumentalists of any kind (Flute, Trumpet, Strings, etc.) any age (beginners through experienced adults) are always welcome to enhance the music of our liturgies. Please list what instrument you can play and for how long you have been playing it. Contact Sr. M. Valerie Schneider SND
