Worship & Spirituality
Comprised of parish and pastoral team representatives, this group oversees the liturgical life of the parish.
Director of Worship: Mark Knipp
The role of the hospitality minister is to serve God’s people by warmly greeting and welcoming parishioners and visitors as they gather for Mass. This person assists with seating, helps take the collection and facilitates the communion procession. After Mass, various duties are performed such as: handing out bulletins and straightening up areas.
A lector proclaims the word of God during Mass. God’s Word is alive and the lector is the person who brings it to life for the worshiping assembly. New lectors are invited to a training session.
The Eucharistic minister assists the priest and/or deacon in the distribution of the Body and Blood of Christ. A Eucharistic minister is a confirmed member of the church, with a reverence for the persons being served and of the sacrament shared, and has participated in a training session for Eucharistic ministers with a parish commissioning.
The sacristan assists in the immediate preparation for Mass. General duties include the preparation of the bread and wine and books and vessels. The sacristan also assists liturgical ministers as directed. Training and mentoring is provided.
An altar server assists the priest and deacon during the Eucharist and other liturgical celebrations. Because of the reverence and maturity needed for this ministry, the requirement is that altar servers be in 5th grade or older.
Altar Servers (Funerals)
A funeral server assists the priest during a funeral Mass. A funeral server may be a child (grade 5 or older) or an adult.
