Liturgical Ministers assist in the celebration of Mass in a variety of ways.
Altar Servers are adults or young people in grade six or older who serve the entire assembly by their example of prayer and by assisting the priest and ministers. They must attend training sessions and should have a reverent presence at all times.
Lectors are Catholics of high school age or older who proclaim the Word of God at our liturgies. They should regularly attend Mass at St. Michael and have ease with speaking in public. Lectors must make time to study and prepare for their assigned readings.
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are Catholics of high school age or older who help distribute the Body and Blood of Christ to their fellow parishioners. They should regularly attend Mass at St. Michael, develop a strong Eucharistic spirituality and always be in communion with the assembly through their actions.
Ushers are men and women who arrive early for Mass to help welcome people as they arrive and, when there is a large gathering, help people find a seat. They are needed also to take care of any special needs of the assembly and to assist with the collection at Mass. New ushers are always welcome!
Greeters take turns once a month coming 20 minutes early to Mass to greet people and hand out worship aids.
