Christians come together in one place for the Eucharistic assembly. . . All have their own active parts to play in the celebration, each in his own way: readers, those who bring up the offerings, those who give communion, and the whole people whose "Amen" manifests their participation. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1348)
Lectors, Altar Servers, and Eucharistic Ministers are called and come forth to serve the Body of Christ.
Altar Servers Needed
Altar Servers are needed for all Masses – we welcome students in grade 3 and up who have made their First Communion to become a server. Three short training sessions take place before being scheduled and new servers are always paired with veterans while they are learning. Anyone who is interested should contact the Director of Religious Education at firstname.lastname@example.org or see any priest or deacon after Mass.

Eucharistic Ministers are selected by the Pastor to assist the Priests/Deacons in distributing the Eucharistic elements to the faithful during the Liturgy. Additionally, volunteers will be asked to distribute the Eucharist to those hospitalized or homebound.

Lectors, if you are looking to review the Readings for your assigned Mass ahead of time, please visit the website of our Conference of Catholic Bishops. On the bottom right corner of the main page, there is a clickable calendar where you can find the Readings for the next few months. Please note that if you are looking for the Readings for the Saturday evening Mass, they are always those of the Sunday.
