Dedicated, responsible youth in grades 5 - 8 assist the priest in the celebration of Mass and other worship services: weddings, funerals, confirmation, etc. Periodic meetings will be held for training. This is an excellent way for the young people to be involved in the Liturgy, and is a stepping stone to future involvement in the Liturgy, such as Eucharistic Ministers and Lectors.

Volunteers are needed as weekly adorers, substitutes, and coordinators for our perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Chapel! Of course, even though you commit to an hour, understandably things come up, and so it is merely a matter of finding a substitute when you are not able to be present for your time slot. Please don’t let the possibility of an occasional conflict prevent you from signing up.
