Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMs)
Extraordinary Ministers assist in the distribution of Holy Communion during Sunday and Weekday Masses and bring the Eucharist to the sick and homebound. Extraordinary Ministers are chosen by the Pastor, offered special training, and commissioned to exercise this special ministry for a particular period of time. Please note that only trained and commissioned ministers are permitted to bring Holy Communion to the sick and homebound. If you are interested in becoming an Extraordinary Minister, please contact Fr. Brody.
Lectors proclaim the Word of God in Sacred Scripture during Sunday and Weekday Masses. They are tasked with the clear proclamation of Old and New Testament readings as well as the General Intercessions (Prayer of the Faithful) in the absence of a Deacon. These ministers are specially trained to read the Word of God within the context of Mass so that the Faithful can hear and understand what is being expressed in Sacred Scripture. If you are interested in becoming an Extraordinary Minister, please contact the Parish Office.
Altar Servers assist the priest in celebrating Mass by taking part in the entrance procession and recession, helping to prepare the Altar at the Offertory, ringing the bells, and many other tasks. Boys and girls in 5th grade and above in Catholic or public school are eligible to become altar servers. Servers are trained for Sunday and Weekday Masses as well as special Masses and Liturgies. If your child would like to become an altar server, please contact the Parish Office.
Ushers are responsible for welcoming and greeting those entering church for Weekend Masses or special liturgies. In addition, ushers take up the collection during Mass and ensure the safety of all in the church. Typically, ushers serve at the Mass they attend regularly. If you are interested in becoming an usher, please contact the Parish Office.
Adult Choir & Cantors
The parish choir is a vibrant part of our parish liturgical celebrations. The choir leads the assembly in song every Sunday during the 11:30 AM Mass. The choir rehearses every Wednesday evening at 7:30 PM in Church. In addition, some members of the choir lead the assembly in song while serving as cantors during Sunday Masses, Holy Days, and special liturgical celebrations.
