As a worshiping community we are all called to actively participate in our liturgies through song, prayer, silence, and ritual movements. Service in one of the Liturgical (mass) ministries listed below is an excellent way to serve God and His people. Please prayerfully consider joining one of these ministries.
Ministers of Hospitality provide a welcoming atmosphere and service to the needs of all who enter the Cathedral. They serve at weekend and special occasion Masses. Men and women, singles, couples, and families are needed! A minister of hospitality needs a warm smile and pleasant disposition, and the ability to work as a team player.
Greeters are posted at the doors of the Church to provide a first welcome to all who enter. Ushers also welcome parishioners and visitors to the Cathedral. They provide assistance in seating, collect and take up the gifts; direct the communion procession, hand out bulletins and generally attend to the needs and questions of the congregation. Formation session Monday, Sept. 24, 10:00am and 7:00pm.
Lectors proclaim the Word of the Lord to the assembly at Mass and other liturgies. If you have a love for God’s word, and the willingness to learn to proclaim it effectively, please consider volunteering for this ministry. Lectors must be confirmed Catholics, 16 years or older. Formation session Thursday, Sept. 13, 10:00am and 7:00pm.
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion assist with the distribution of the Body and Blood of Christ during Mass. No experience is necessary. Participation is open to fully initiated (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist), practicing Catholics. Formation session Monday, Sept. 17, 10:00am and 7:00pm.
Spiritual and practical formation is provided for all Liturgical ministers including how to manage their schedule using a new parish software system. Formation sessions will be repeated in October.
