ALTAR SERVERS:

They assist the Presider at Mass in the sanctuary enriching the assembly’s worship.  Anyone between the ages of 9 and 90 that can focus for an hour can serve our Lord at His table.  Training sessions are offered the 2nd and 4th Saturday each month. Contact Kimberly Stewart at .

CHILDREN’S LITURGY OF THE WORD:

This ministry serves children, ages 4-12, by proclaiming God’s Word on a level that they understand, and reflect on its meaning in their lives.  Usually, this takes place at all Masses on the 2nd and 4th weekends of each month. Readers, assistants and song leaders are needed.  A thirty minute prep per month is required.  Contact Micheal Cervantes.

REPRESENTATIVES FOR THE RITE OF BAPTISM:

Baptism representatives assist the families of those being baptized during the weekend liturgies; help with reserving seating for families; assist the Presider; call the families to answer any questions and remind them of the protocol. Training for this ministry is done individually. Contact: Micheal Cervantes.

EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF HOLY COMMUNION:

These ministers make it possible for the sharing of the Lord’s Supper to be experienced in a timely, yet dignified and reverent manner.  To serve in this capacity you must have received the Sacraments of Initiation and be in good standing with the Catholic Church. All required training will be provided.  EMHC’s are encouraged to foster a devotion to the Holy Eucharist and to continue their personal growth in holiness.  Contact Micheal Cervantes.

LECTOR MINISTRY:

The task of the lector is to make God present in the Liturgy of the Word and to communicate to the congregation, the Living Word, active and present in our lives. Lectors attend a preparation and formation session, 9:15 to 10:15 am, on the Saturday morning of the weekend they are scheduled to serve. Contact   Micheal Cervantes.

USHERS:

These are the men, women and youth who make sure everything comes together.  The Usher Ministry functions to provide greeting and assistance to those attending the celebration of the Mass.  Membership is open to registered members of our parish.  On-the-job training is provided and service is on a rotational basis.  The duties include: welcoming the community, seating the assembly, preparing the gifts of bread and wine, collecting the offering, building the communion procession, distributing bulletins, and providing overall care, direction and hospitality to the assembly.  Contact Tim Powers at .
