Altar Serving is a great way for kids to be directly involved with the Mass. All students in third grade or above are eligible to be Altar Servers. Please contact Deacon Nathan Gunn if you would like to sign up to be an Altar Server.
Being a minister of the Eucharist is truly a sacred responsibility, entrusted to those who take their ministry most seriously and with devotion to the Lord’s Body and Blood. The communion rite is the heart and center of the entire Mass. The gathering of the community, the proclamation of God’s Word, the remembering and thanksgiving and offering in the Eucharistic prayer — all are directed toward the moment of communion in which we, fed with His own Body and Blood, are made one in the Lord. A primary qualification for ministers of Communion is that they be by nature interested in, caring about, and at ease with other people. All who gather at the table of the Lord do so as brothers and sisters in the Lord, and must be welcomed there as such. Assignments will correspond to your first or second choice of Mass times. Lectors are assigned about once every eight weeks. Eucharistic Ministers are assigned twice a month.

The ministry of Lector is a most sacred responsibility, entrusted to those who take their ministry most seriously and with devotion to God’s word. Lectors are responsibly for two readings and the prayer of the faithful. Preparation is essential, and the reader should be comfortable speaking before the congregation.
