EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF HOLY COMMUNION

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion help distribute Holy Communion and take Holy Communion to parishioners who are unable to attend Mass.

HOSPITALITY MINISTRY

Hospitality ministers welcome parishioners to our parish, seat worshipers at the weekend liturgies, collect the offertory contributions and aid in the flow of communicants.

LECTORS

Lectors read the Scripture passages prior to the gospel. They also recite petitions for the Prayer of the Faithful. Lectors meet as a group several times a year.

Sacristans

Sacristans set up the worship space before each Mass. They insure that there are enough ministers to fill the needs for the liturgical service for which they are scheduled.

PRESENTATION OF THE OFFERTORY GIFTS

If your family would like to carry the offertory gifts to the celebrant during Mass, please sign up in the book in the church lobby or talk to a Hospitality Minister before Mass.
