Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

A Minister of Holy Communion is one who distributes the Eucharist either within or outside the celebration of the Mass. Ordinarily, the minister is the priest; however, when there are large numbers of people receiving Communion, various lay ministers assist. Training sessions are held for new ministers. If you wish to become a Minister of Holy Communion, please speak with the Pastor or call the parish office. Some of our ministers bring Communion to our shut-ins. This is a very special ministry and very much appreciated by those who ar visited.

 

Lectors

To become a Lector, you need good speaking skills, speak from the heart and also be reliable. Before the Gospel, lector's proclaim Old and New Testament passages from the Bible. Lectors must be Confirmed and of high school age or older. Instruction is provided for new lectors. For more information contact Bernie Perron at 877-3971.


Altar Servers

Altar servers play an essential role in enhancing the dignity and grace of liturgy. They lead the entrance, offertory, and recessional processions with cross and candles, and assist Father during Mass. Servers may begin after they have made their First Communion, and continue through high school. For more information, contact the rectory. We are always in need of altar servers. There is an instructional class given to new servers.
