Liturgical (Mass) Ministries  

Serving at Mass is an honor and a privilege which should not be entered into lightly.  Prayerful people who enjoy serving and meeting people are those best suited to these ministries.  Training is required for all those interested in serving at Mass. 

Altar Servers assist the priest at Mass.  Young people may participate in this ministry once they have received First Holy Communion.  

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion assist in distributing Holy Communion during Mass and to the sick and homebound of the parish.

Lectors  proclaim the Sunday Mass readings for the congregation.  

Ushers greet and assist people as they enter for Mass, take up the Offertory collection and guide people during Communion.

Choir

“What do you want of me Lord? Where do you want me to serve you? Where can I sing your praises? I am your song.”    Our choir is directed by Maralyn Coscia.  We have both an adult and children's choir. Our dedicated and hard-working adult volunteers meet for rehearsal every Wednesday evening at 6:30p.m. in the Parish Center. We sing every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. Mass. We also prepare music for all the special liturgies of the parish.

The Children’s Choir is open to children of the parish ages 5-13. The children's choir rehearses on Wednesday afternoons at 4:00 pm in the Music room.  At 3 pm the music room is open and available for you to use for homework time before rehearsal begins.  

The Children's Choir will start singing at Mass on September 27. 

The chlidren's choir sings every Sunday at the 9 am Mass. This is a wonderful opportunity for the children to learn to sing beautifully and praise God with a fun and exciting spirit.
