Liturgy

Our Sunday gathering is the “Source and Summit” of our weekly prayer. The liturgy is like a symphony of ministers working in harmony. These ministers include: Proclaimers, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Gift Bearers, Musicians, Servers, Ushers, Greeters, Rosary Leaders, Sacristans and Media Ministers.

If you are interested in giving your time and talent to any of these positions, contact Karen.
