These wonderful people pick up, wash and then return all used church linens each week for use at Mass the following weekends. This is a ministry you can do at home! All are welcome to join.
ADULT CHOIR & RESURRECTION CHOIR
See Music Ministries heading for more information.
Boys and girls in grades 3-12 are invited to serve at weekend Masses. They have a training session before they serve. This ministry is a wonderful way for our young parishioners to share their time and talent. For more information, contact Shelley Brown at the Parish Office.

ARTS AND ENVIRONMENT
Help beautify the church environment inside and outside at different seasons during the year. Duties can include decorating for the major liturgical seasons as well as spring and fall cleanups and spring planting. For more information, contact Lori Westman, via the Parish Office.
CHILDREN'S LITURGY OF THE WORD LEADERS
Teach children about God’s Word in a meaningful way. During the 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Masses, leaders help children explore the Gospel message in an age appropriate fashion and help them understand ways they can live out the teachings of Jesus. Training is available for High School & Adult Leaders - two adults must be present each Sunday Session. For more info, contact Cheryl Lee at the Parish Office.
EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF HOLY COMMUNION
Receive training and ongoing support to understand the privilege and responsibility of assisting clergy (ordinary ministers of the Eucharist) in the distribution of the precious Body and Blood of Christ during weekend liturgies. Once trained, ministers are scheduled according to Mass attendance preference. For more information, contact Richard Lewis via the Parish Office.
EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF HOLY COMMUNION TO THE HOMEBOUND
Bring the Eucharist to the faithful who cannot attend Mass and partake in this very rewarding ministry. Parish ministers go in pairs to Munson Hospital, Bortz Nursing Home, and to the homebound. Ministers meet occasionally for updates and receive instructions when they begin serving. For more information, contact Pat Navyac via the Parish Office.
Lectors are ministers of the Word of God at Mass. Training is held on a one-on-one basis as interest is shared. Clear voice and understandable delivery are key to this ministry. Scheduling is done via MSP by the Parish Office and is based on the lector's mass preference. For more information, contact Cindy Michelin via the Parish Office.
Share your hospitable and welcoming spirit with others as you serve as an usher ministering at the particular Mass you usually attend. Ushers hold doors, greet and assist people to find seats and make sure that the communion procession is orderly. In general, they help assure liturgical celebrations function smoothly.
