 Worship & Spirituality

Liturgy Committee:  This group meets seasonally to plan liturgical celebrations. They make suggestions as to the prayers, rituals, music and style of worship utilized within our services.

Environment Committee:  This committee creates prayerfulness through the visual. By the use of plants, floral arrangements, fabric, candles, etc. This group prepares the spiritual atmosphere of our worship services. They meet seasonally to plan and execute their ideas.

Eucharistic Ministers:  These ministers help distribute the Body and Blood at weekend celebrations, at daily Eucharist, or for funerals.

Ministers of the Word (Lectors):  This ministry involves the proclaiming of the scripture readings for Eucharistic celebrations. The scheduling is done on a rotating basis.

Ministers of Hospitality (Ushers):  These ministers consist of teams of individuals who serve as both greeters and ushers for the parish. Each team is scheduled to minister for approximately two weeks on a rotating basis.

Altar Servers:  This ministry includes youth and adults of our parish. Men and women serve the needs of weekday Eucharistic celebrations and funerals.

31 Club:  Those who join this club pick the same day each month and make a special effort to pray for Church vocations on that day. This would include attending daily Mass if possible and other types of personal prayer that day for vocations.


Ministers of Music (Choir, Cantor, Instrumentalist):  Anyone who enjoys praising God with the gift of song or music is encouraged to share their talents. Cantors help to lead the community in song at the weekend celebrations.

Instrumentalists, song leaders and cantors commit monthly for the liturgy most convenient for them.

The adult choir is made up of those who enjoy singing or playing an instrument. They practice Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 PM and minister at the 10:00 AM Sunday Mass and other special celebrations.

Other ensembles, such as the youth choir, guitar groups, etc. will be scheduled to minister once a month.

The Resurrection Choir is made up of volunteers who assemble for vigil services and funeral liturgies.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word:  During the 10:00 AM Sunday Masses, volunteers lead the 4 & 5 year old children from Mass for activities and discussion and they return after the homily. This is not a “baby-sitting service” but rather an opportunity for the children to learn of God’s love and goodness according to their developmental capabilities.

Eucharistic Adoration:  This takes place every Monday, from 8:30 AM to 9:30 PM in our St. Casimir Chapel in the church. Participants are asked to take an hour to pray before the Eucharist.

Good Samaritans:  These are Eucharistic Ministers that take Holy Communion to our home-bound each Sunday after the 8:00 AM Mass. Participants do this on a rotational basis.

Sacristans:  These helpers come every Saturday morning to help prepare the church for the weekend liturgies. They also help clean altar linens and provide for other needs with the church.
