The Worship Standing Committee is the decision making body
that serves the community by planning, and evaluating the
quality of our liturgical celebrations, especially the Sunday
Masses. We coordinate training sessions with Ministries,
Environment and Music Sub-committees. The membership for
the Worship Committee is comprised of any interested parishioners
who would like to contribute their time, talent and services
as we enhance our worship service so that it becomes part
of our daily life. The Worship Committee will also arrange:
workshops, concerts, seasonal liturgies and celebrations
as opportunities arise.

Ministries Subcommittee oversees the following community ministries:
• Eucharistic Ministers:
These are the volunteers distributing Communion to the congregation at Mass
and also taking Communion to the home bound.
• Lectors: Lectors
proclaim the readings to the assembly so that we can be spirit filled and
understand the full message Jesus has for us.
• Altar Servers: These ministers of our community assist Father in the celebration of the Mass. They
carry the light of Christ into church as we begin our celebration, hold
the light as the Gospel is being read so that the work will shine on us,
and lead the way to the altar as our offerings are taken up.
• Ushers: These are
the first people we see as we enter the church. They assist with seating,
the collection, locating the parishioners needing assistance, directing
the Eucharistic Ministers to the parishioners unable to go up to Communion
and last but not least, hand out the ever so important bulletin.
