Liturgical Ministries

These are the Liturgical Ministries:

Come Pray with Mary/The Most Holy Rosary: The Come Pray with Mary Rosary Group began praying together in September 1988.  Parishioners gather each Monday at St. Michael’s Chapel dedicating prayers for world peace, for an end to abortion, for all priests; especially those at OLOL, and for our own special intentions.  Saint John Paul II reminded us that “to recite the rosary is nothing other than to contemplate with Mary the face of Christ”.  You are most welcome to join us from 4-5pm on Monday’s.   Honor our Blessed Mother, pray the rosary and integrate this practice of Catholic Spirituality into your prayer life.

Cleaners: These volunteers wash linens, clean and organize the Sacristy, or church, or associated facilities. Training provided.

Decorators: The beautification of our worship space and buildings is their concern. They establish and maintain an appropriate setting for our liturgies and events, consistent with the Church calendar.

Sacristans: These volunteers unlock the church one half hour before Masses. They assure that all the wine, bread, cups and other necessary items are in place for Mass, and put them away when Mass is over.

Greeters: These volunteers give a hearty welcome to all who enter for Mass. They may encourage introductions, direct people to restrooms, ask ushers to help find seating and answer basic questions about the parish. They are stationed at each door. Their ministry begins 20 minutes prior to Masses.

Ushers: Assisting in welcoming, finding seating and collecting the offerings are the jobs of the ushers.

Choir member/Cantor/Instrumentalist: Bringing us closer to God through music is the job of these people. Willingness to attend rehearsals and training is required.

Altar Servers: Assisting the priest at Mass is the job of these volunteers, young or older. Training is provided.

Lectors: The ability to proclaim the Word of God with strength and conviction is the job of these volunteers. Training is provided. A three year commitment is requested.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word Leaders: While the adults and older children hear the Scriptures and Homily, this group of parishioners meet in another space, offering the Scriptures in kid-friendly language with a simple activity that is appropriate for children who have not yet received their First Holy Communions. Materials and support are available.

Eucharistic Ministers: These volunteers are trained to offer the Body and Blood of Jesus either at Mass or to the home bound. A three year commitment is requested.

Count team: In pairs or small groups these volunteers count the collected offerings and prepare them for bank deposit. Training is required. A three year commitment is requested.

Prayer Line: Since 1978, a dedicated team of parishioners prays for any special intentions. To join them or have yours added to the list, contact the parish secretary.
