Liturgical Ministries

The Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith. It is at Mass that we are nourished by Word and Sacrament then sent into the world to bring the Good News to others. Liturgical ministries help to uphold the beauty and dignity of the mystery that is being celebrated. To join one of these ministries or if you have any questions please contact us.
