Acolytes/Adult Servers - The instituted acolyte is appointed to assist the deacon and serve the priest in the celebration of the liturgy. He is an extraordinary minister of Holy Communion serving only when sufficient ordinary ministers are not available. Instituted acolytes, as necessary, may also assist with the formation of other ministers who assist at the altar. Because these ministers are dedicated to service at the altar, they should strive to learn all they can about public divine worship and strive to grasp its inner spiritual meaning. A primary responsibility is to assist with the purification of vessels used in the distribution of Holy Communion. Steve Genest, email@example.com.

- Art and Environment -Liturgical Environment Ministry - A quickly growing ministry of adults (women AND men) of all ages and abilities, serving together, and guided by the Holy Spirit to ensure that our Parish's sacred spaces, buildings and grounds simply and elegantly reflect each liturgical season of our Catholic faith.
Our ministry encompasses a variety of activities from Floral Design, Landscape Planning, Sacred Art & Furnishings, to Liturgical Textiles and Installations. We break all of our activities down into Liturgical Seasons. This is a tremendously gratifying ministry - and everyone is welcomed to join us during whichever season holds most importance for you. We gather for work days on Tuesdays from 12pm - 2pm, and Saturdays from 10am - 3pm. We invite you to join us anytime, so that we might meet, live and share Christ more fully with one another.
