LITURGICAL MINISTRIES

st. john lectorsEucharistic Ministers of Holy Communion – Assist the priest in administering the Body and Blood of Christ at weekend liturgies, Holy Days and during special liturgies. The priest nominates parishioners to serve as Eucharistic ministers.

Altar Servers – Altar servers play an important role in the celebration of Holy Mass and are valued greatly by the priest and parish communities. All parishioners who have received the Sacrament of Communion are invited to serve at the altar in this ministry.

Lectors – Proclaim God’s word during Mass.

Liturgical Music Ministries – Parishioners enhance the beauty of our liturgies as vocalists, organists and instrumentalists.

Ushers/Greeters – Ushers greet everyone as they enter our churches to celebrate Mass with our parish communities. They also direct the offertory collection, Eucharistic procession and bulletin distribution.

st. john ushersCoffee Hour – Parishioners gather to continue the celebration of Mass and grow as a parish community. St. John parishioners serve refreshments each Sunday following the 8:30 am Mass. The Ladies of St. Anne serve refreshments the second Sunday of each month following the 10:30 am Mass.

Youth Sundays – The youth of our parishes serve as lectors, ushers, greeters, and altar servers on the second Sunday of each month (September through May). They also frequently serve in our regular lector, altar server, usher/greeter and music ministries.

Decorations – Parishioners prepare our churches for liturgical seasons, holy days and special liturgies with beautiful decorations including linens, flowers and special occasion adornment.

Catechists – Parishioners share knowledge and experience of the Catholic faith through an inter-generational Fashioning Faith program and for students preparing to receive sacraments. All catechists complete 8-hours of religious education training and VIRTUS Protecting God’s Children trainings.
