Worship & Spiritual Life Commission

Our Liturgy Committee organizes Sunday Masses, as well as the variety of devotions that are part of our rich Roman Catholic Tradition.

Additionally, this committee organizes the various ministries of the parish, including Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, altar servers, offertory families, ushers, lectors, greeters and special considerations for seasonal celebrations.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Laity who assist the clergy in the distribution of Holy Communion during Mass, as well as to those who are home-bound or sick, are called "Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion."

You can learn more about the practice of Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion from the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Altar Servers

Serving at Mass and other liturgies is an important role because the server is assisting, not just the priest, but the whole worshiping community. Hence, altar servers are called to be aware of their role and their responsibility in performing it well.
