Commissioned during a Sunday Liturgy in a formal ceremony, these men and women assist in the distribution of the Holy Eucharist at Sunday Masses. In addition, they assist at the daily Eucharistic celebrations. Eucharistic Ministers also serve as sacristans, cleaning and setting out the sacred vessels.

Interested persons are asked to call Lisa Bozdeck at 729-0653 or mrsboz29@gmail.com |

Music raises our worship to a higher level whether it is instrumental, a single voice, or the voices of the assembly united in song. We welcome instrumentalists of all kinds, cantors who will sing the responsorial psalm and lead the assembly, and adults who would like to join our choir.

This group works on may levels to make our liturgies meaningful. With our pastor, they increase the assembly’s understanding of the liturgy. The Worship Comittee develops the theme of a season, through Art, Environment, Education and Formation.


Artists, designers, craftspeople and helpers prepare and install banners and other decorations appropriate to the liturgical season. To contribute in this way. Please contact the parish office if you can help.


In mirroring Christ we strive to be inviting and hospitable, meeting the needs of those who join us in worship. We are in the process of organizing this ministry. We welcome men and women who would like to serve the assembly in this way. If you are interested in this service, contact Jo Ann Perkins, 270-3118, jerkinsperkins@netscape.net.

Our sacristans voluntarily care for the sanctuary, sacristy, sacred vessels, altar linens, vestments and floral arrangements. These parishioners ensure that these sacred items are available and ready at the proper time.

Church cleaning is done each Friday after morning Mass, and also prior to major feasts. These are voluntary men and women who work behind the scenes to maintain our church. If you can help occasionally, please contact Anne Kruse for information at 843-0335.
