Ministries

We are an active, vibrant church that is not program-focused, but rather people focused. We offer a wide range of ministries for each family member to get connected, stay connected, grow in the Word and grow closer to God. Below are a few of our ministries.

“Let the children come to me.” (Luke 18:16)

Being an Altar Server offers the youth of our parish the opportunity to grow in their faith by serving the Lord and expanding their participation in our Catholic Mass. Altar Servers attend to supporting tasks at the altar such as carrying the Crucifix during the beginning and ending processions, setting the altar table and ringing the altar bell.

Boys and girls who have made their First Communion and are enrolled in Faith Formation classes may become Altar Servers. Candidates must be available to serve at weekend Masses and other liturgical celebrations.

It is important that Altar Servers be active participants in the liturgy by listening, singing and praying with the entire assembly.
