Lectors proclaim Holy Scripture at each Mass during the Liturgy of the Word.
Lectors are asked to spend time with God's Word regularly to hear, feel, see, imagine, and be nourished by the message.

Ushers and Greeters are ministers of hospitality. Ushers arrive 20–25 minutes prior to the start of Mass. They facilitate any special needs, assist in seating, answer questions, take up the collection, and hand out bulletins. The Ushers also select a couple or family to present the Gifts during Mass. In general, the Ushers supervise the even flow of each Mass then tidy up the pews and books after, so the church is presentable for the next Mass. 
Greeters welcome parishioners and visitors as they arrive at the church. They answer questions concerning the parish, committees, and the community. They also distribute requests for registration cards to new parishioners and welcome new parishioners/visitors to our community.

Music Ministry

"Bless the Lord, my soul; all my being, bless His Holy Name!" (Psalm 103:1)
We are instructed by God to offer ourselves to Him as an offering to His Holy Name. We glorify God at Mass because Jesus said, "Do this in remembrance of me." (1 Cor 11:24). 
Our primary responsibility in the Holy Mass is the glorification of God, and we worship and praise His name through the sung prayer of the Mass.

The most important voice of the sung prayer is the entire congregation, and our music ministry strives to enhance that participation of the faithful through our various choirs and ensembles. We are always in need of more participants willing to give of their time and talent.

If you have a musical ability or are just inquiring about how you might fit into this music ministry, please contact our music director, Jake Ineck 208-888-1182 x3020 or
