Mass Ministry schedule
Click on the titles below for detailed ministry descriptions.
This is one of the most privileged ministries -- having received the greatest of gifts, the Eucharist, one is then sent to serve others
the Body and Blood of Christ! Requirement is a spirit of reverence
for the Eucharist, and service to others. Training is provided and
the schedule is flexible.
This ministry is for lovers of the Word who have, or are willing to develop, the skills of proclaiming that Word to the Assembly. Training is provided.
The ministry of hospitality has several faces, one of which is the first a parishioner or visitor sees upon arrival at St. Mary’s for Mass: the greeter at the door. First impressions are important, and a warm welcome can do much to help people begin their worship time. Requirement is a welcoming presence and ability to stand for the duration of arrival time (about 15-20 minutes before Mass) and after the dismissal to pass out the bulletins. This is a wonderful ministry for anyone including families with children!
The ministry of Hospitality has several faces, one of which is to help people find a place in the assembly, and to pass the baskets at the time of the collection of gifts. Requirement is to be friendly and helpful, watching for any special needs. Training is provided and the schedule is flexible.
A ministry for anyone and a great ministry for families with children. There can be from 3-6 persons, or more, in the procession of gifts. Instructions will be given before the procession of gifts. Sign up in the white binder on the back table for the Mass you attend or in advance for a “special day”.
