Liturgical Ministries

As we enter Ordinary Time, following a beautiful Christmas Season, it seems like an especially appropriate time to consider serving in one of our liturgical ministries. We have a special need for more parishioners to serve our community in one or more of the following ministries:

  • Lectors (Proclaimers of God’s Word),
  • Ministers of the Eucharist,
  • Greeters of Hospitality/Ushers,
  • Altar Servers

Please speak with Fr Dennis after Mass or by calling the Parish Office if you are willing and able to serve in one of these special ministries. Thank you for prayerfully considering this important need that we have.

Youth Corner

John the Baptist knew one would come after him who was sent by God. But how would John know who this person was? The Lord spoke to John and told him to watch for the one on whom the Spirit rested. How do we recognize God in our midst? We can know that God is at work in us, in others, or in a situation in which we see evidence of the Holy Spirit’s presence. Check out Galatians 5:22-23 for the list of the fruits of the Spirit. Whenever you see these at work, know that God is there!

Communion for the Sick and Homebound

We are blessed to have Ministers of the Eucharist of our parish available to take Communion to our sick or homebound parishioners who are unable to attend Sunday Mass. Please contact the Parish Office if you have a family member or neighbor who would like to be visited with the Eucharist.
