Ministry Opportunities Within The Parish
"Mother Church earnestly desires that all the faithful should be led to that fully conscious and active participation in liturgical celebrations which is demanded by the very nature of the liturgy. Such participation by the Christian people as a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a redeemed people (1 Peter 2:9; cf. 2:4–5), is their right and duty by reason of their baptism." (Sacrosanctum Concilium 14).All are welcome and encouraged to participate in our ministries for our Masses.
- Sacristans: Setting up Mass and organising the ministers for each Mass.
- Commentators: Commentators introduce Mass and lead us in the Prayers of the Faithful.
- Readers: Proclaim the Word of God at each Mass.
- Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion: Distribute Holy Communion at our Masses.
- Altar Servers: Children who have made their First Holy Communion are more than welcome to become Altar Servers.
