Lay ministers of the Eucharist, Lectors, Music, Ushers and Servers all foster this sense of the body of Christ among the faithful, so we invite you to lean more and consider joining one of our ministries.
The Communion rite is the heart and center of every Mass and our Lay ministers of the Eucharist have the great honor of ministering Our Lord's Body and Blood to their brothers and sisters in Christ.
As ministers of the Word, Lectors are called to do what John the Baptist did-- proclaim "Prepare the way of the Lord!" and "Make a straight path for the Lord” by bringing God's Word in Scripture to touch the hearts of that all that attend our Mass.
The primary role of an usher is to serve as an “official host” to all who come to worship with us and make them feel welcome, whether they are new to our parish, have been members for years or are visiting.
Greeters welcome all who gather to our liturgical gatherings, in the same spirit that we welcome family and friends to our homes
Music is an integral part of our prayer services, so we are thrilled to have our adult choir sing at our 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. Sunday Masses (except during the summer). Cantors also help support our liturgy by leading our parishioners in song. Rehearsals are held weekly on Wednesday evenings and we encourage anyone interested in music to join this ministry.
Servers are integral to Mass, as they assist the priest by preparing the sanctuary and gifs for Mass, and insure that the sanctuary is in order after Mass. Anyone in 4th grade or older is invited to become a server
During mass the videographer uses St. Saviour's camera equipment to broadcast live online to parishioners and others around the world.
"The greatest liturgical symbol is the assembly of the Christian community transformed into the body of Christ . . . . Since this is the case, then primary responsibility for good liturgy rests in the primary symbol to function as the praying people of God, the assembly of the faithful."
