Sacristans ensure that all the materials needed to celebrate liturgy are ready and in place for each celebration.
Lectors proclaim the Word of God to the assembly at liturgy, voice the community’s petitions in the Prayer of the Faithful, and make announcements.

Take Communion to the sick, hospitalized and homebound, thereby taking Christ through faith and charity, on behalf of the whole community.
Celebrating the Eucharist is central to our faith. However, due to illness or injury, many Catholics in our parish and community cannot join in the celebration.
Our desire is to stay connected with them so we have a team of volunteers, Eucharistic Ministers to the Sick, who bring Communion to convalescent, nursing, and individual homes as well as local hospitals.
If you or a loved one are sick, hospitalized and/or homebound and would like Communion brought to you, please contact the parish office or Deacon Luc Papillon.
Eucharistic Ministers: Serve the Body and Blood of Jesus to the community at liturgy.
Hospitality Ministers welcome us as we arrive to worship, helping us find our way around the worship space and into comfortable seats, facilitating our processions (especially at Communion), and handing out worship aids and bulletins. They help all of us be responsible stewards by taking up the collection at the liturgy. This ministry is open to new members.
An Altar Server is a minister who is trained to anticipate the needs of the presider during liturgy and meet those needs with grace and reverence. This vital ministry involves over 100 of our young people in grades 5 through 12. Training takes place once a year over seven weeks in late winter/early spring. Parents are required to attend the first training session with their child(ren). Installation of first year altar servers takes place in October. We are so proud that our altar servers, led by Mr. Bob Shadduck, are invited to serve at the Cathedral on different occasions every year.
