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.
