The call to discipleship, inherent in Baptism, finds its expression through ministerial involvement. God’s people respond to the invitation of the Holy Spirit to identify and offer their gifts for the building up of the Body of Christ.
Ministry of Lector
The word proclaim comes from the Latin pro meaning “before” and clamare meaning “to cry out.” The Lector proclaims the Good News of Jesus Christ, making God present to the gathered community.
The ministry of Lector is a charism for the building up of the community, and it does require some native abilities such as confidence, poise and sensitivity to the assembly. Reading skills, the ability to develop proclamation techniques and a clear and steady voice are attributes of a Lector.
If you feel called to this ministry, please contact Walt St. Clair.

Ministry of Usher
The Usher's Ministry is a twofold ministry. First, usher's provide service to all who visit our parish. Usher's greet you with a smile and are prepared to offer assistance in finding seating, directing you to where you need to go, and responding in case of an emergency.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are called to serve the Body of Christ that is the Church, as well as the Body of Christ in the Eucharist species.
