Liturgical Ministries

Mass Coordinators, Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers,
Altar Attendants, Ushers, and Greeters

“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace. Whoever preaches, let it be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with the strength that God supplies, so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”

1 Peter 4: 10-11
