Liturgical Ministries

Liturgical Ministers have a special opportunity to be Christ to those assembled by their acts of service within the Mass.  By welcoming as ushers, by proclaiming the Word as lectors, and by imitating Christ in sharing communion as Eucharistic Ministers, liturgical ministers are Christ present sacramentally.  Everyone who is baptized has Christ’s imprint and so is worthy of being a liturgical minister.  Through Baptism we share in Christ’s mission and in his holy priesthood. The presider cannot do all that needs to be done during a liturgy so that it is a beautiful offering of praise and sacrifice to God.  By using our skills and talents to help, we share in Christ’s priesthood.  Through the presider and through us, in our different roles, Jesus is revealed and our prayer deepened.
