We gather to worship and we are always looking for volunteers to help make our celebrations the high point of our day or week. We are looking for the following:
- Altar Server: Male and female students are invited to assist the priest at Mass. Altar servers make sure that all of the elements needed for Mass are prepared before our celebration and assist the priest during the celebration. After Mass the acolytes make sure that everything is put away. Altar servers are needed especially for Sunday celebrations.
- Choir, Instrumentalists and Cantor: To paraphrase St. Augustine: “He who sings well, prays twice.” Students with a gift for and interest in helping the assembled community to sing during the Mass are most welcome. Rehearsals are scheduled before and after Mass or as needed.
- Ministers of Hospitality: Ministers of hospitality are ready to serve as needs arise. They help to seat those who arrive for Mass, take up the weekly collection, assist the offertory procession and help pass out information (i.e. bulletins, announcements, etc.).
- Extraordinary Ministers of Communion: This ministry is for fully initiated Catholics (those who have received Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist). In the absence of the ordinary ministers (priest or deacon) they serve as ministers of communion distributing the Body and Blood of our Lord to those who come forward to receive Holy Communion. The Extraordinary Minister of Communion must be invited by the priest and formally commissioned.
