Liturgical Ministry Opportunities

Altar Servers

Contact: Deacon Mike Truman  410 398-0009

Altar Servers serve the parish family by assisting in the celebration of the liturgy as a mirror and model for the gathered assembly; by serving the priest as he presides over the liturgy, and by serving God through their worship and prayer.

Any boy or girl who has completed the 3rd grade and has received this or her First Eucharist may serve as an Altar Server.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word

Contact: Gwen Davis  410 392 8078

Each Sunday during our 10:15 AM liturgy (September-May) our young people (ages 5-8) are dismissed to celebrate the Liturgy of the Word at an age-appropriate level. While the Liturgy of the Word is celebrated in the church with adults – a Catechist also celebrates and examines the meaning of God’s word in the children’s lives. Catechists are always welcome. Proper  training and continuing support is even to assist you.

 

Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist

Contact: Parish Main Office  410 398 1100   

Each week our community gathers around the Eucharist table to be nourished by the body and blood of Christ. Eucharistic Ministers assist the Presider with the distribution of communion. Also, a Eucharistic Minister may expose the Blessed Sacrament for exposition, conduct communion services, and bring communion to the sick. In this ministry, one should be an example of Christian living in faith and conduct; and should strive to grow in holiness through the sacrament of unity and love. Candidates (16 or older) are selected from our community and approved by the Chancellor of the diocese. Following their approval each candidate mud participate in a training program and is then installed.

Lectors

One of the central parts of our liturgical celebration is the proclamation of God’s word. Proclaimers are members of our parish community who proclaim the Old Testament and the New Testament readings.

Many Proclaimers use this opportunity to deepen their own prayer life – through their preparation. This ministry is open to all who feel they have the gift of proclaiming.
