Pastoral Associate of Liturgy
Liturgy & Music Ministries at the Cathedral Basilica
Ministry of Holy Communion
Extraordinary Ministersof Holy Communion serve “the one Bread” and “the cup of blessing” to our parish family. Their service at the Lord's table grows out of reverence of the sacrament and the people they serve.
Ministry of the Home-bound
Deacons and other lay ministers take Holy Communion to the Home-bound.
Ministry of the Altar
Servers assist the presiders at our weekend Masses. Boys and girls, Grade 4 and up, begin serving at Mass after they have received their First Eucharist. This experience gives our young people a way to become fully involved in the action of the liturgy.
Ministry of the Word
Readers serve our parish in the proclamation of the Scriptures during Sunday and weekday liturgies. It is the telling of the story of salvation and being the messengers of God’s love for us. This happens through the study of scripture and their own personal prayer. Training is provided.
Ministry of Hospitality
Ministers of Hospitality welcome us to each Mass and help us move through the liturgy. Their ability to greet people as they assemble for prayer is a strong witness to all who come.
Ministry of the Adult Server
The server is instituted to serve at the altar and to assist the priest and deacon. In particular, it is his/her responsibility to prepare the altar and the sacred vessels and, if it is necessary, as an extraordinary minister, to distribute the Eucharist to the faithful.
