Sacristans prepare and set-up Sage Chapel prior to Mass and also clean up and store liturgical items after Mass. Sacristans are requested to make themselves available for special masses and holy days, especially Holy Week and Easter. Sacristans serve roughly a half hour before mass and 15 minutes after mass. They must be attentive to detail, reliable and generally able to serve on a bi-weekly basis.
HMs are also referred to as greeters or ushers in parishes. Our HM responsibilities include welcoming parishioners, handing out hymnals and bulletins, completing the “count” for hosts, and assisting with the collection, the flow of Communion and emergencies. HMs should be friendly, outgoing, quick thinking and attentive to detail.
Lectors make God’s presence available to the assembly through the Word which they reverently proclaim. They are scheduled to read every 3 week or so during the semester and as available on Holy Days and breaks. Training is required regardless of previous experience; you will be asked to prepare a reading for the training and be prepared to take some constructive criticism.
Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion:
EMs help to reverently distribute the Eucharist during Mass. To be an EM you must be fully initiated into the Church (Baptism, Confirmation & Communion). Training is required and a commissioning given for all EMs in our community regardless of previous training.
