Welcome! Liturgical ministry is an excellent opportunity to fulfill your baptismal call of service to one another. Our liturgies should utilize the talents and gifts that God has given this community to the fullest extent. Whether participation is through “behind the scenes” preparation and planning or through a public role of service within the Mass, parishioner contributions help our liturgies to be truly life-giving celebrations. Please prayerfully consider joining one of these ministries.

It is our privilege to help the Priest distribute communion at all the Masses. Many of our ministers also take communion to the sick and homebound in the ministry of the sick.

Contact: Ms. Mairead Deehan 230-7577.
The Greeters are volunteers whose purpose is to greet parishioners and guests hospitably before and after Mass and other services, as well as distribute the weekly bulletin at the sanctuary entrance. Volunteers may request their Mass preference for assignment.
