Liturgical Ministers

Description: Liturgical ministries include: Extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion (emHC), Greeters, Readers, and Ushers.  Each of these groups perform an act of service encouraged by the Church to help people become active participants within the celebration of the Mass.

  • Extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion reverently administer the Sacrament of the Eucharist during Mass.
  • Greeters assist in preparing the faithful for prayer by warmingly welcoming them into the church and providing missalettes and bulletins.
  • Readers carefully and prayerfully proclaim the Word of God and offer the Intercessions after the Creed.
  • Ushers help visitors find a seat, if necessary, and take up the collection at the Offertory.  They will also provide assistance to anyone in need.
All liturgical ministers are usually scheduled every week or two.
