A service rendered by parish women who prepare the church for daily Liturgies, funerals and baptisms. They also maintain the altar linens and supplies. Come join us and be a part of adorning the Table of The Lord.
These young people serve at the altar of Christ. The Altar Servers’ important role requires that they be at least 10 years of age, and attend all scheduled training classes to learn more about the Mass and their faith.

This is a very rewarding ministry that gives you the opportunity to proclaim the word of the Lord. Lectors devote time and preparation to understand the Word of God so that all may hear and be open to God transforming their lives. Lectors require good reading skills.
Liturgy of the Word for Children
At the 10:45 a.m. Mass children ages 4-9 hear the Word of God at their level. After the opening prayer they are dismissed to the Day Chapel with a team of adults. The First Reading and the Gospel are proclaimed; there is an interactive engaging reflection, the Creed, and Prayers of the Faithful. The children return to their families in the main sanctuary during the Procession of the Gifts.
Ushers serve the parish by assisting during Mass with a friendly greeting, seek seating for parishioners, take up and secure the monetary collections, and dispense weekly bulletins. Be part of assisting your parish community in this important ministry.
