The Liturgical ministries provide opportunities to participate more fully in
    the celebration of the mass, which is central to our Catholic faith and
    spiritual lives. All parishioners are encouraged to consider one of the many
    liturgical ministries. Every weekend over 50 people are required to fill all
    the ministries needed by our liturgies. Ordinary parishioners do these
    ministries – one need not be perfect. God does not call the ones who are
    fit, but fits the ones who are called. Say yes, and experience the grace of
    God's work within you.
