The Hospitality Ministry is a very important ministry. Teams of four volunteers greet and welcome parishioners and visitors before Mass, perform the duties of taking up the collection during Mass and passing our bulletins at the end of Mass. They are sensitive to the needs of our parishioners and visitors who may need their assistance during Mass. They are assigned to carry out this ministry during a Mass they usually attend on the weekends and on Holy Days. They are scheduled on a rotation basis which provides them the opportunity to serve in this ministry several times throughout the year. Training for this ministry is provided.

A decorating committee meets to place, prepare and do the work that results in visual help for prayer. Extra work crew volunteer many hours to make the special feasts and seasons a beautiful sight.

 

Men and women are encouraged to serve as Eucharistic Ministers. Periodic meetings are held to instruct persons interested in volunteering for this ministry. Ministers assist in the distribution of Communion at all Masses.

 

Sacristans prepare the sacred vessels, set up the altar, credence and gift table for Mass on the weekend. They oversee that all ministers are present for their particular ministry during the Mass they are assigned. The sacristan ministry also includes cleaning the sacred vessels after Mass, preparing for the next Mass or putting everything in its place after the final Mass on the weekend. Sacristans volunteer their services on a rotation basis for the Mass they usually attend. Training is available for all new sacristans, who are usually also Eucharistic Ministers.

 

Parishioners who are interested in serving as Lectors for all masses are welcome. Schedules are prepared with an attempt to meet the individual's schedule.

Three servers are assigned for Saturday and Sunday Masses while more assist on special occasions. New servers are trained at school Masses or during the summer for those not attending Precious Blood School. All young men and women are welcome and encouraged to participate as Mass servers.
