Opportunities to Serve in Liturgical Ministry
Interested in participating in Liturgical Ministry? Altar Servers, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, and Readers come together to serve in our liturgies on a rotating basis as well as for special liturgies. We provide initial and ongoing training to our ministers. Contact Don Jacoby at email@example.com to learn more.
Greeters arrive at Blessed Sacrament 30 minutes prior to Mass to greet people as they arrive and distribute bulletins. Ushers also welcome people, answer questions, serve as point people should there be an emergency, and take up the collection. Both greeters and ushers should help at the end of service to remove any non-pertinent papers from the pews. Contact Walt Sears at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
