Liturgical Ministries

Altar Servers assist the presider at the altar.  Just as importantly, they are called to be examples of full, active and conscious participation in the liturgy for all those who gather for liturgy.  They do this by wearing the “alb” (the garment of Baptism) and by enthusiastically and prayerfully celebrating the liturgy with the people.  Both youth and adults are invited to participate.

The word “Eucharist” means “thanksgiving”.  The role of the Liturgical Eucharistic Minister is to assist the clergy with the distribution of Holy Communion either at Mass or when the Eucharist is carried to the homebound, to the hospital, or Claremont Nursing Home.

The ministry of leading liturgical music is for those who are in touch with God’s love for all people and who wish to lead people to encounter that love in liturgy through ritual song. If you have been given the gift of music (vocal or instrumental), consider using that gift for the good of others in liturgical music leadership.
