Server Coaches

Server coaches lead, guide and instruct the Altar Servers during all Sunday, Holy Day and school Masses. Our overall goal is to instill a deeper appreciation for and understanding of the Mass. Server coaches are usually the parent of a server. However, if you are a mature teen who has served in the past, and would like to take on more of a leadership role, you too can be trained as a coach. For questions or to schedule a training please call:

Funeral Altar Servers

We have a team of volunteers who serve as Funeral Altar Servers. This ministry is open to adults (men or women) who may have a little time to spare. Consideration will also be given to our youth altar servers who would like to serve a funeral during the summer months. Due to the nature of this ministry, parent’s permission will be required for our youth to serve. As you know, the timing of funerals is very unpredictable, so it’s not a specific day, but funerals are usually early in the day. We will give you all the training you need and you will always be serving with someone else. If you would like to learn more about becoming a funeral altar server, please call Lorri O’Dea at 694-4891, ext. 214.

Readers of the Word

A Reader of the Word has the amazing honor of proclaiming the Word of God at the celebration of the Mass. We are not simply public readers of the Bible, we are an instrument through whom the Lord proclaims His Word to the people. As Reader of the Word, we lend God our human voices.

We always need people with strong, clear voices to proclaim the Word to us! Becoming a reader at Mass is a wonderful way to serve your brothers and sisters, to grow in your own faith life, and become more engaged with the celebration of the Eucharist.

If you are a gifted public speaker and have the willingness to prepare ahead each week when scheduled, please consider becoming a Reader of the Word.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

The ministry of the Eucharist is a ministry of reverence, gift giving, and welcoming. Those who aspire to be Eucharistic Ministers should be people of mature and demonstrated faith. They should be effective Christian witnesses and active in the sacramental life of the church, and must have received the Sacraments of Initiation.
For information on how to become a Eucharistic Minister, please contact:

Ushers

While Ushers are most often associated with the weekly collection, their responsibilities don’t stop there. These ministers arrive early to Mass to ensure that all supplies (worship aids, bulletins, collection baskets, etc.) are ready for distribution, they recruit gift bearers, and perform any other task that may be required for that particular Mass.
More importantly, Ushers are often the first contact each worshipper has with the assembly. Therefore, their attitude, appearance and smile provides the good news of God’s welcome and his love for all.
Anyone (man, woman, youth) who by his/her very nature is friendly, caring and giving, and who is active in the sacramental life is encouraged to pursue this ministry.
