Liturgical Ministries


Students (Child/Youth)

The Altar Server assists the members of the liturgical assembly by presenting or arranging vessels and other items used in the celebrations. Their reverent and efficient service enable other ministers to attend to their own roles while the liturgical actions unfold with calm, order and appropriate decorum. As members of the assembly who are often visible to all, the altar servers also model good liturgical participation. The parish welcomes boys and girls who is in Grade 5 and up to be an Altar Server. This ministry is a wonderful opportunity to develope leadership skills and self confidence from an early stage in life.  They will be given an opportunity to have some training in order to be able to serve at our Litugical Celebration.  If anyone is interested in becoming an Altar Server, you are asked to contact the parish office.


In addition to having Servers assist at the Sunday liturgies, we also invite any adult who might be available during the week to assist as Funeral Servers. This is most important ministry to rpovide assistance with the variety of duties involved with the Funeral Mass. If anyone would like to share their time helping families in their special time of need, please contact the parish office.

They are deputed by the Bishop at the request of the Pastor to assist the celebrant and other Ordinary Ministers during liturgy in distributing the Eucharistic Body and Blood of Christ. Individuals are commissioned by the Pastor or his delegate. Training and regular workshops are provided for on-going support and formation.
