Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
This ministry is open to Confirmed, practicing Catholics who have a deep love for the Eucharist. Extraordinary Ministers are commissioned to feed the community of Holy Apostles Church with the Body and Blood of Christ during liturgical celebrations.
Lectors proclaim Holy Scripture each Sunday at Mass during the Liturgy of the Word. Lectors are asked to spend time with God’s Word regularly to hear, feel, see, imagine, and be nourished by the message.
The many members of the music ministry devotedly share their time and talent to lead the Holy Apostles community in sung prayer, praise and thanksgiving. Currently, there is an Adult Choir, a Children’s Choir and four music groups.
Ushers / Greeters (Ministers of Hospitality)
Ushers and Greeters are ministers of hospitality. Ushers arrive 20-25 minutes prior to the start of Mass. They facilitate any special needs, assist in seating, answer questions, take up the collection and hand out bulletins. The Ushers also select a couple or family to present the gifts during Mass. In general, the Ushers supervise the even flow of each Mass then tidy up the pews and books after, so the church is presentable for the next Mass. Greeters welcome parishioners and visitors as they arrive at the church. They answer questions concerning the parish, committees, and the community. They also distribute requests for registration cards to new parishioners and welcome new parishioners/visitors to our community. Schedules are posted approximately every three months.
