As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace. 1 Peter 4:10
Strengthen the connection to your faith and our parish community! Get Involved in our Parish Ministries.
Additional volunteers are needed for all ministries – the more hands, the lighter the load.
Extraordinary Ministers of Communion: If you are a confirmed Catholic and in good standing with the Church, consider becoming a lay Eucharistic Minister. In this role, you assist the priest in administering the sacrament of Holy Communion at Mass.
Greeters: This is a very important ministry in that you are the face of Christ as people enter the church. If you can smile and be welcoming to all attending, this is a ministry for you. Along with greeting, helping at offertory to take up the collection is required.
Lectors: If you can read and feel the call to share the Word of God during Mass, you are invited to become a lector. A Lector Workbook is provided to help you prepare for the readings.
Servers: Since the role of server is integral to the normal celebration of the Mass, two servers should assist the priest at the weekend Mass. Servers light the candles, carry the processional cross, assist the priest when he receives the gifts from the people, presents the bread, wine, and water to the priest during the preparation of the gifts, washes the hands of the priest, and assists the priest celebrant and deacon, as necessary. All 4th grade Religious Education students receive server training in the fall, however, adults are also welcome to serve in this role.
If interested in any of the above mentioned ministries, please contact Theresa Weisse at 262-644-8616 or Cindy Wolf at 262-483-8553, with questions or for training and scheduling information. More detailed lay Ministry Guidelines and videos can be found on our Parish website, with the tab "Liturgical Ministries."
Choir: As St. Augustine said, "He who sings prays twice". If you enjoy singing, share your talent by joining the choir. Experienced keyboard players are also needed to help us raise our prayers in song. Please contact Karen Wulff at 262-224-5538, if interested or for further information.
