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.
Volunteers needed to serve at the 9:30am, 1130am, 7pm Masses. Each year, at the start of the new academic year in September, it is necessary for the coordinators of the Masses to appeal for volunteers from our parish community – those returning or just joining us – to consider volunteering for the serving roles within the Mass, without which it would be very difficult for our community to celebrate these Masses. There is a need for altar servers, Eucharistic ministers & Sacristans.
Please contact St. Mark’s Parish by email to communicate your interest. Training (about 45 minutes) will be arranged. Thanks in advance!
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 and 11:30am Liturgies).
There is a time of children’s activities that takes place during the 9:30am and 11:30am masses. During these sessions, the young members of the congregation are treated to a time of singing, stories, and games!
