Acolytes assist our clergy at the altar as torch bearers, servers, crucifers, thurifers and boats. Youth in the 3rd through 12th grade are invited to serve as Acolytes.
In this behind the scenes ministry, members prepare the altar for worship services. They also provide care for the silver and linens. They work on teams in a monthly rotation.
Each member of the flower guild takes a scheduled week to arrange the altar flowers. In addition, as a group we set up for special occasions, such as Palm Sunday, the "garden" in the Oratory Chapel for the watch on Good Friday, Easter, Thanksgiving Eve, Lessons and Carols, and Christmas. This truly is the most rewarding ministry.
Greeters play an important role in hospitality. They hold exterior doors open and offer the first welcome our visitors receive. They’re the first point of connection people make with the church. If you can smile, hold the door and be available to answer questions, please join our team!
Our Lay Eucharistic Ministers serve once a month as chalice bearers at the altar during the 8:30 or 11:00 service. Training is available, and no experience is necessary.
Each Sunday in teams of two, parishioners take communion to members who are unable to attend church due to illness or injury, as well as our members who live in care facilities.
The lectors proclaim the Word of God by reading the Old Testament, Psalm, and New Testament lessons during services. The lector ministry is usually a commitment of one Sunday per month and a few special services for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Lent.
The subdeacons assist the clergy one Sunday per month at the 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. services.
The Vergers assist the clergy and manage the altar party, including the acolytes and the Lay Eucharistic Ministers. They are ready to step up and be problem solvers during the service.
The ushers assist and serve all those in attendance at each service, so that the liturgy may be celebrated without distraction or interruption. Ushers distribute bulletins and welcome each person, helping them to find a seat, if necessary. Ushers collect the offering and direct the flow of the congregation to the communion rail. They provide assistance and direction, when needed. They also act as first responders in the event of an emergency.
