Ministry Highlight

ST. PAUL MINISTRY HIGHLIGHT

Looking for a way to put your Faith In Action?  Over the next several months, we will be highlighting many of the St. Paul Parish ministries.  Take a look to discover the many ways we serve each other and our community, and how you can help.

 

 

LITURGICAL MINISTRIES

EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF HOLY COMMUNION, LECTORS, SACRISTANS

Purpose of the ministry:  To make the celebration of Mass prayerful and beautiful.  Serving in one or more of these ministries enables one to develop a deeper and more profound experience of the Mass.

 

Tasks of the ministry's members:

Eucharistic Ministers of Holy Communion – distribute Holy Communion, clean and store vessels after Mass

Lectors – Proclaim the readings at Mass

Sacristans – Set up vessels, liturgical books, linens for Mass; assist in clean up after Mass (if needed)

 

Any special skills that are helpful or required: Training will be provided for all volunteers, so no prior experience is required.  It is helpful if lectors have a clear and strong speaking voice.  

Time commitment of members:  A minimum of 1-2 Masses per month, and more if you are willing

Particular needs at the current time: We have need of several volunteers for each of these ministries.  Many hands make light work!

How the ministry serves our parish community and/or greater Colorado Springs community:

This ministry enables our parish community to participate more fully in the sacrifice of the Mass.

Serving in one or more of these ministries enables one to develop a deeper and more profound experience of the Mass.
