Liturgical Ministers

Liturgy & Worship“Thy will be done”

A stewardship parish strives to nourish the soul through prayer. Prayer and the sacraments dispose a soul to receive God’s abundant graces, which are necessary to grow in holiness. There is a deep connection between the Eucharistic celebration, thanksgiving and stewardship—ways to thank God.

Altar Servers

Boys and girls may be trained as altar servers during their 5th grade year. On occasion, Adult servers are needed for special masses, such as 1st Saturday. If interested, please call the church office to have your name included on the altar server schedule.
