Learn More About Our Ministries!

Usher & Greeters

The usher/greeter is an important part of our Welcoming Ministry, greeting people with a smile as they enter church.   An usher also assists in seating visitors, tends to people with special needs, passes the collection baskets, distributes bulletins, and removes clutter after Mass.  This ministry is open to mature youth to adults.  This is an excellent way to meet people and be an active part of our parish!  Training is provided.


"The word Sacristan comes from the Latin word, sacer, meaning sacred. This sacred and essential parish ministry is most often work performed behind the scenes, but very visible if not performed with diligence and accuracy."  The sacristan prepares the sacred vessels, vestments, and altar for Mass, then cleans up afterwards.  The time commitment is 20-25 minutes once or twice a month.   Training is provided.

There are a few ministries that could use more people at each Mass.  If you are interested in any of these, please email Mary at

Videographers:  We are in need of a few more people to video tape the 6:30 PM Saturday Mass.  If you are in high school or older, consider joining this team.

Projectionists:  These fine people project the slides during each of the Masses.  If you like to work behind the scenes, this could be for you!

Liturgical Master of Ceremony (LMC):  Master of Ceremony prepares the credence table, all sacred vessels and assists the presider during Mass.

Eucharistic Ministers:  Assist with reverence and dignity, in the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass.

Ushers are ministers of hospitality and greet our members and guests before Mass.  They assist in the Sunday collection, distribute bulletins after Mass and assess emergencies.
