Enhancing the spiritual life of our parish
The Worship and Spiritual Development Commission fosters and enhances the spiritual life of the Cathedral parish by the planning and implementation of worship and spiritual development opportunities according to the liturgical norms of the Roman Catholic Church.
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.
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.
Families in our parish are invited to volunteer as Offertory Families, who present gifts at the altar during Mass.
If your family is interested in taking the gifts up at Mass, please contact the Parish Office by calling (660) 827-2311 or (660) 826-2062.
Ushers and Greeters assist the faithful before and during Mass, taking up the collection and distributing bulletins after Masses.
If you are interested in serving as an Usher or Greeter at Mass, please contact the Parish Office by calling (660) 827-2311 or (660) 826-2062.
Lectors are readers, who proclaim the Word of God at liturgies. All new lectors will have a training session prior to being assigned.
If you are interested in becoming a Lector, please contact the parish office today to sign up and receive news of the next lector training session.
Sacred Music is a vital component of the Holy Mass.
Our Parish has various choral groups who sing at Sunday and Holy Day liturgies throughout the year.
We invite you to learn more, or join a choir, by visiting the Sacred Music page.
