 Altar Servers

Altar boys and girls are taken from both the school and the religious education program to serve and assist the priest during the Eucharistic celebration or any other special liturgical celebrations.

One of the best ways any youth can actively participate in the life of the Church is as an Altar Server.  We strongly believe that it is a great honor to be an Altar Server and we enthusiastically urge you to encourage your sons and daughters to become involved in this very important ministry.  Serving at the altar is not only a great privilege; it is also the source of great blessings.

Altar Servers should have received their first Eucharist and regularly participate in Mass. They are trained to assist at Mass and other Liturgical Celebrations as needed.

Lectors

To proclaim the Good News is truly a joy and a gift shared by the entire parish family.

Lector Ministers are fully trained before ever being asked to serve. In addition to the practical training, there is also an initiation period where “Newcomers” serve with seasoned Lectors–no one is on their own before they are ready!

Would you be interested in serving in the Lector Ministry? Please contact the Parish Office and select.

Lector Instructions:

Below is a sample of the kind of general instruction and helpful hints you can expect when you are a member of the Lector Ministry:

A WORD CONCERNING THE LECTOR’S BEST FRIEND

The MICROPHONE should be our most trusted companion when we proclaim. Some of us need to spend a little more time with our best “Buddy.” When we read, the microphone should normally be adjusted to the level of our chin and about six to eight inches away from our mouth. Some of us, (yes, we who profess to be seasoned Lectors are included) are not close enough, which means we work hard to prepare, but when we deliver we cannot be heard. What a waste! Some get so close that our “p’s” pop. Some shout so loud that we startle our listeners into distraction. So, please spend some time with someone monitoring your voice projection with your “Buddy.”

Ushers

Ushers assist the parishioners as they gather for Sunday and special liturgies in various ways. They are involved with hospitality, accommodating parishioners, helping during Communion, taking up the collection, and distributing bulletins.

Join the Mother of Christ Catholic Church Ministry of Hospitality (aka Ushers). There is no greater gift than to make the parishioners and guests feel welcome at each Mass Celebration.

Request information today!

Ministers to the Sick

Who Are the Ministers to the Sick? 
.    Ministers to the Sick are ordinary people who commit themselves to the visitation of the sick, nursing home residents, the hospitalized, shut-ins and their caregivers.  This visitation is called Pastoral Care and is one of the most ancient ministries of the Church.
.    A ministry once open to all baptized persons, the care of the sick and dying, became a ministry for priests and religious over the years.  With the renewal brought by Vatican II, the right of the baptized to care for one another’s needs was restored.  It is a serious commitment and a powerful witness to the love and care of God. Pastoral care has a dual purpose:
1.   First, attentive listening to the cares and concerns for another as a representative of the Christian Community to which the sick ot shut-in belongs.  This visitation may include conversations, prayer, and the Eucharist.
2.   Second, the minister is to represent to the community the suffering and needs of those visited, so that the Body of Christ might find healing through mutual love.

To receive the services of a group within the Ministry of Care or for more about the Ministry to the Sick or to join the Ministry to the Sick, contact the Ministry of Care.
