  • Children's Liturgy of the Word
    The Mass is the center of Catholic life, and this ministry provides an opportunity that is sensitive and geared to enable children to participate in the worship experience. The children are led from the 9:15 a.m. Sunday Liturgy to the Children's Chapel off the Narthex, where the readings from the Children's Lectionary are geared to their level of understanding. Adult presiders and prayer leaders facilitate.

  • Eucharistic Ministers
    Parishioners with a devotion to the Mass, the Sacraments, and the Church are invited to become Eucharistic Ministers. The purpose of this ministry is to assist the priest in the distribution of the sacred Body and Blood of Christ. This can include taking the Eucharist to our brothers and sisters who are unable to attend Mass due to illness or advanced age. Training is required.
