Liturgical Ministers

Welcome! Liturgical ministry is an excellent opportunity to fulfill our Baptismal call of service to one another. Our liturgies at St. Francis de Sales utilize the talents and gifts that God has given this parish community to the fullest extent. Whatever your participation, parishioner contributions help our liturgies to be truly life-giving celebrations. Please prayerfully consider joining one of these ministries.

Parishioners who assist with the distribution of the Eucharist (Body and Blood of Christ) at weekday, weekend, and Holy Day Masses. Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (formerly known as Eucharistic Ministers) must be 18 years of age, have received the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Catholic Church and, if married, must be recognized by the Church. Training is ongoing.

Readers proclaim the Word of God during the Liturgy and, when there is no Deacon present, the Universal Prayer. A reader must have a passion for Scripture, an ability to interpret and understand Scripture, and sufficient public speaking skills to proclaim the Word to the assembly. Readers are provided with a Workbook to assist with proclamation and pronunciation. Sufficient personal time is required to study and reflect on the Word in order to properly prepare for Mass.

To participate in this ministry, youth must be in the fourth grade or above and received their First Holy Communion. They should have a love of God and willingness to assist the parish community in worship. Parental support is also necessary to ensure punctuality.

Adult parishioners who serve as Ushers and Greeters are the first ministers one meets when they arrive at our parish for any celebration. Their warm, friendly smile and welcoming greeting sets the tone for the worship experience. A pleasant, outgoing personality is most important! Ministers also assist in offertory, ensure orderly flow at communion time and provide additional assistance as needed.
