Assisting the priest during the Mass is a beautiful expression of offering time and talent for boys and girls (4th grade and older). Regular masses, funerals, weddings and Holy Days all present opportunities to serve. Training is required. Download the Altar Server Handbook for more information.
Having a genuine love for the Eucharist and expressing a beautiful commitment to the parish is a very special gift. Eucharistic Ministers serve the Body and Blood of Christ during Mass or Communion Services. This ministry is extremely spiritual and personally fulfilling.
Lectors must love the Scriptures and be competent readers to effectively proclaim God’s word. Sharing the Word of God and general intercessions to the Eucharistic assembly brings salvation and hope for all.
Adults and children share their gifts of musical talent and ability in the Music Ministry at Assumption. Bringing the Word of God to others through song is joyful evangelism.
Ushers / Hospitality:
The usher / hospitality ministry is a simple welcoming and sometimes the first impression of Assumption parish. Greeting and assisting the priest, parishioners and visitors as they arrive for regular mass, Holy Days and special occasions opens the heart of the community to our friendship and love.
