What does the word “Liturgy” mean? In Christian tradition it means the participation of the People of God in “the work of God” (from the Catechism of the Catholic Church 1069). This crucial ministry ensures that the Liturgy runs smoothly to create a prayer atmosphere where the people can gather to worship together as a community.
How to get involved:
If you are interested in serving in any of the Liturgical Ministries listed below (as Lector, Eucharistic Minister, or Altar Server), please contact Lioba Na at the Parish office.
1. Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, Altar Servers.
The Lectoring ministry has an important responsibility to assist the Presider to proclaim the First and Second readings, and the Prayers of the Faithful. This is a special calling to those who have the gift to deliver the word of God with authority and clarity.
2. Eucharistic ministers
3. Altar Servers
In addition to assisting the celebrant of the liturgy during Mass, the role of the altar server is to maintain the reverence for the mystical qualities of the celebration of the Mass.
4. Children’s Ministry (during the 9:30am Liturgy).
During the 9:30am Sunday Liturgies, the young members of the congregation are treated to a time of singing, stories, and games!
NOTE: June 18 is the last day for Children`s Liturgy until the fall
