Altar Servers

This ministry is for either children at least in the fourth grade or adults who have received their First Holy Communion and has a desire to assist the Celebrant during the liturgy.  Altar Servers should set an example to the congregation of reverence and participation in the Mass.  There is a progressive training program beginning with Novice to Server to Master Server based on service and knowledge.

Choir

Unlike performance musicians, the members of the music ministry produce song out of sheer love, in praise of God, assisting parishioners in their efforts to pray. Regardless of past experience or current ability, you are invited to help us praise God and join in our celebrations at Mass and in the community. Using your musical gifts is a wonderful way to contribute to building up your Church and to give back to God what He has given abundantly to you.   Groups include the Adult Choir, Children’s Choir, and Cantors that compliment, support and enhance the spirituality of each liturgy.

This ministry is to read the First and Second Readings and the Prayers of the Faithful to the congregation during Mass so that all can hear and understand the Word of the Lord.  Enunciation and projection are important talents.   There is an initial 2-3 hour training program, along with an annual renewal session.  

If you like to read in front of people and would like to share this talent.
