SERVE WITH LOVE

Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.
— John 12:26

lECTORS

Lectors read the Sacred Scriptures during mass. Lectors must be comfortable reading in public and should dedicate their lives to the tenants of the Gospel. When the Sacred Scriptures are read in the Church, God himself speaks to his people, and Christ, present in his word, proclaims the Gospel.

MASS FACILITATORS

Mass Facilitators make sure that everything is in place prior to mass. They assure that all lectors, extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion, altar servers, and gift bearers are present and prepared for the liturgy. They help gather the weekly collection and assist in tidying up after mass.

SACRISTANS

Sacristans make sure that the priest, deacon, ministers, and people have what they need to perform the Rites of the Church. Sacristans set up the sacred vessels, missals, liturgical books, announcements, and prayers of the faithful prior to mass. Sacristans assure that altar servers and ministers are in the right place at the right time during the liturgy.

MUSIC

Do you sing or play an instrument? We would love to have you offer your talents during the celebration of Mass. "The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul." - J.S. Bach

USHERS

Ushers fill the crucial role of serving as the "first face" of the parish and welcoming newcomers. Ushers greet parishioners as they enter the church and help seat them as needed. Ushers also manage the collection and hand out bulletins after mass.
