Liturgical Ministry

Lectors assist at Mass by proclaiming the Word of the Lord via the prescribed texts found in the lectionary for a specific day.

Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist assist at daily and Sunday Mass by helping to distribute the Precious Body and Blood of the Lord in Holy Communion, as well as bringing the Eucharist to the home bound and hospitalized.
