ART & ENVIRONMENT Plan, set up, maintain, and tear down church decor to suit the Church’s liturgical seasons and feasts.
LECTORS A lector is one who is at ease speaking before a large group of people, has a love of Scripture, and is willing to spend time preparing the readings. Ongoing training is provided. A rotational schedule is prepared for Sundays and for special liturgies.
PROJECTIONISTS The projectionist uses a computer and remote control mouse to operate screen projectors for liturgical music and prayer. A basic understanding of liturgy and some computer “know-how” is needed, as well as an unflappable spirit.
These ministers are scheduled on a rotating basis, to distribute the Eucharist, in the form of bread or wine, at Eucharistic liturgies.
MINISTERS OF HOSPITALITY (Ushers and Greeters) Men, women, and youth are invited to be part of a team which greets and seats worshippers, collects the offering, directs an orderly flow at communion time, passes out bulletins at the end of Mass, and ensures that the church is neat and orderly after the liturgy.
