Lay Eucharistic Ministers
Licensed by the bishop, the Lay Eucharistic ministers recruit, train, and maintain a corps of parishioners who administer the chalice, read scripture during service, and assist at all liturgical celebrations of the parish. When clergy is not available on Sundays, this group is authorized to conduct Morning Prayer services. They also perform the duties of an acolyte in assisting clergy during liturgical celebrations.
Our Lay Eucharistic Visitors are authorized to take communion after service to sick and homebound parishioners.
Under the leadership and direction of the Director of Music, the choir provides music for all liturgical events and other parish events as needed. To learn how to participate, click here.
Ministry of Hospitality
The ushers (or greeters) are responsible for greeting members and guest as they enter the sanctuary. They are responsible for seating people, receiving offerings from worshipers, directing the flow of those approaching the altar during service, and taking care of the needs of the congregation.
The altar guild is the service group for the altar and sanctuary. They assist the clergy with the preparation of the altar for liturgical services. They maintain the sacred vessels, altar hangings, and clergy vestments. These duties include cleaning and storing the vessels, maintaining altar linens and vestments, and polishing silver and brass items.
