Our liturgical ministers serve the community at weekend liturgies and special liturgies throughout the year. Please contact the Parish Center or one of our priests if you would like to be involved in any of these ministries.
We invite you to become involved in a liturgical ministry!

Ushers Needed at All Masses
Ushers, Ministers of Hospitality, are men or women of high school age or above willing to give their time during liturgies to help others attending Mass. This includes welcoming and guiding people to their seats before Mass, at communion time, taking up the collection and aiding the handicapped or anyone taken ill. Parishioners interested in joining this ministry are welcome and needed, particularly at the 12:15 p.m. Mass.
Volunteers are needed for Children’s Liturgy of the Word at Sunday 10:45 Mass.
Preparation materials and training are provided. Please help us to continue to offer this ministry. The commitment is only once a month but the reward is great!
