Mass

Ministries

Liturgical ministries include being a Lector at Mass, a Sacristan, and/or a Eucharistic Minister. Sign-ups for Liturgical ministries are held in September and April. Both new and veteran ministers are required to sign up. Ministries are scheduled twice a year, from December to May and from June to November. Contact Tim Irwin at 263-5576 for more information.

Lector
Lectors serve the Catholic Church by reading Mass readings. This is an opportunity available to all Catholics once they receive some preparation, but the responsibility should not be taken lightly. Reading from the Word of God is central to the Catholic Mass and, when it is done properly, effectively communicates God’s grace and love to everyone in the church.

Sacristan
A sacristan is as an officer who cares for the sacristy, where vestments and sacred vessels are stored, the sanctuary and all contents.

Eucharistic Minister
A Eucharistic minister is a lay person who serves the Catholic Church by distributing Holy Communion during Mass and bringing it to the homebound. All Eucharistic Ministers should be mature Catholics in good standing, persons of excellent character, who take their faith seriously, and have respect and reverence for the Eucharist. It is a great privilege and a wonderful opportunity of increased devotion to serve the church in this way.
