Liturgical Ministries

Their dedicated participation greatly enhances the reverent celebration of the Mass. Serving on one or more of these ministries is an excellent way to give generously of one’s time and talent to the parish. Parishioners willing to serve as a liturgical minister are invited to attend one of the Ministry Workshops, which are held periodically and are advertised in the bulletin.
