Liturgical Ministries

Adult Funeral Servers

These parishioners are altar servers and Eucharistic Ministers, when needed, at funerals in our church.


There is Adoration every Tuesday in the St. Christopher Chapel beginning at 9 AM and ending at 7 PM, followed by Novena.

Altar Servers

Altar servers are girls and boys who are in the 5th grade or older. After training sessions, they serve at weekend Masses. Students from St. Christopher School serve the 8 AM weekday school Mass.

Church Environment

These parishioners plan the liturgical environment and décor for the church according to the liturgical seasons.

Eucharistic Ministers

Eucharistic Ministers assist the priests and deacons in the distribution of Holy Communion at weekday and weekend Masses. A special diocesan training session prepares individuals, adults and youth who have been confirmed for this special ministry. Those who are able also bring the Eucharist to the homebound, please see St. Christopher Visitors below.

If you are interested in becoming a Eucharistic Minister, you must apply through our Parish Office and then attend a diocesan training program.

Liturgy Committee

The Liturgy Committee promotes the worship of God, the prayer life of the parish community as disciples of Christ and their participation in liturgical ministries throughout the liturgical year.

Members of the Liturgy Committee plan liturgies for the main liturgical seasons of the year, for special events, such as blessing of animals and Stations of the Cross, Reconciliation Services and Communal celebrations of the Anointing of the Sick.


Lectors are adults and young people, who proclaim God's Word in the Sunday Scripture readings to our parish community. Training sessions prepare the lectors for this important ministry. 

Ministers of Hospitality/Greeters/Student Greeters

These men, women and students greet people at the doors of the church before the weekend Masses.  

St. Christopher Visitors

Individuals minister to our ill and homebound parishioners in hospitals, nursing homes, rehab, Hospice or their own homes. These ministers bring Holy Communion to the sick or simply visit our homebound parishioners if that is what is desired.


Men and women who hospitably serve the worshipping community by seating people, taking up the offertory collection, organizing the Gift Procession and assisting in a variety of ways.

Welcoming Committee

The Welcoming Committee helps new parishioners feel "at home" in our parish by making a friendly phone call after the formal registration meeting.
