The liturgical ministry utilizes the talents and gifts that God has given this community to the fullest extent. This could be the “behind the scenes” preparation and planning or through a public role of service within the Mass. By serving the liturgical ministry, parishioners help the liturgies to be truly life-giving celebrations.
Liturgical lay ministries include lectors (Ministers of the Word) who proclaim scriptural (the Bible) passages during the Eucharist, altar servers and acolytes who assist the presider at the altar, cantors and music ministers who lead the singing, extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion who serve during Mass and/or who take Holy Communion to the sick and homebound, and ushers or ministers of hospitality who direct the seating and procession of the assembly.
