Answering the Call to Active Participation

Liturgical ministry is an excellent opportunity to fulfill your baptismal call of service to one another. Our liturgies should utilize the talents and gifts that God has given this community to the fullest extent. Whether participation is through “behind the scenes” preparation and planning or through a public role of service within the Mass, parishioner contributions help our liturgies to be truly life-giving celebrations. Please prayerfully consider joining one of these ministries.

Altar Servers

Boys and girls, beginning in fifth grade, assist the priest and other ministers during the celebration of Mass and other special liturgies. Training is conducted throughout the year based on the number of new servers.

Eucharistic ministers must be at least 25 years of age, be recommended by the Pastor, and approved by the Bishop. Special training classes are mandated and provided by the Diocese.
