Eucharistic Ministers help distribute the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ during communion. Adults and youth who are confirmed and in good standing with the Catholic Church can share the Eucharist during Mass or take communion to the homebound.
This ministry is for youth, adults, and children starting 5th grade. Adults, youth and children serve the 4:30 p.m. Saturday evening Mass; children and youth serve the 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. Masses on Sunday. Altar servers assist Father Gerard with the weekend, Holy Day, and funeral Masses. Training is offered twice a year or by appointment.
All parishioners: individuals, families or groups, are encouraged to become more fully involved in the Mass by presenting the Eucharistic gifts. Anniversaries, birthdays or special occasions are encouraged.
Environment and Art Committee is made up of many people using artistic skills and willing hands to create and maintain a prayerful environment in the church. There are many diverse gifts needed. All are welcome to join.
