Liturgy

and

Sacraments

The Liturgy is central to our lives as Catholic Christians. We invite all the faithful who attend Mass to participate in the liturgy by being a lector, Eucharistic Minister, sing in the choir or welcome people to Church as an usher.

Lectors

"The Liturgical assembly fully requires readers, even those not instituted. Proper measures must therefore be taken to ensure that there are certain suitable laypeople who have been trained to carry out this ministry."

Introduction to the Lectionary, #52

Lectors are those who read the first and second readings at mass, along with the petitions and announcements.

Anyone can be a lector. You need to be trained and be willing to be put on a schedule.

Contact Jill Kreinbrink for more information at jgkreinbrink@fuse.ne

Eucharistic Minister

"An extraordinary minister of Holy Communion is a layperson who assists the ordinary minister of the Eucharist, principally in the distribution of Holy Communion. "

Code of Canon Law, #1061, par 1.

If you would like to become a Eucharistic Minister, we offer several training sessions.

Choir

Everyone is welcome to be a part of the music ministry. Students who choose to sing at the 5:30 mass practice at 4:30 on Sunday afternoons prior to mass. There is no separate rehearsal during the week.

Those who choose to sing at one of the morning masses rehearse on Thursday evenings from 7:00-8:30 from August-May. These groups have the opportunity to sing more choral music and anthems with the weekly rehearsal. All are welcome to sing at whichever mass they attend.

Greeters

Greeters are the first faces that people meet when they come worship with us. We want everyone who walks through the doors to feel welcome and expected. If you are an outgoing, friendly person, we ask you to consider being a Greeter!
