Nov 1 to Dec 1 – 2013 minister’s schedule

 Liturgical Ministries

Parishioners blessed with charisma answer their Baptismal call to ministry by serving the faithful through their active participation in the celebration of the Sacred Liturgy. Their ministerial commitment enables the faithful to be nourished by the Word and by the Eucharist.

They serve as ministers (Lectors, Sacristans, Eucharistic Ministers of Holy Communion, Ushers, Altar Servers, Acolytes, and Pastoral Musicians). Their ministries are inseparably tied to and support their ongoing spiritual journey.
