Here are some great ways to be involved:

Adult Choir
The purpose of the Adult Choir is to assist the congregation in participating at liturgies through song.  Membership is open to all parishioners from high school age on up.  The Adult Choir meets on Wednesdays at 7:30PM in the church from September to June. 

Junior Choir
The Junior Choir assists the school and parish congregations at liturgies.  The Choir also shares their gift of music with the residents of nursing homes and participates in local, civic, and diocesan events.  Parish families with students in Grades 3-8 are invited to participate. 

Couple to Couple Ministry
This parish centered ministry helps the pastoral staff in preparing engaged couples for marriage.  The Diocese Department of Marriage and Family Ministry supplies training for volunteers who meet with engaged couples to share married life experiences. 

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
The Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion assist in the distribution of the Eucharist at all liturgies and bring the Eucharist to housebound Parishioners following the 8:30am Mass on Fridays. 

Greeter and Usher
Greeters and Ushers personally welcome mass attendees, assist with seating, invite parishioners to carry Offertory Gifts to the altar, take up collections, and distribute bulletins. 

Lectors
Lectors proclaim the Word of God in the first two readings of the liturgy and read the petitions at each Mass.  Special training sessions and material are provided. 

Musicians for Liturgies
String, brass, percussion, and woodwind instrumentalists are welcome to enhance the worship experience.  We also invite trained high school, college, and adult vocal and keyboard soloists to share their prepared selections. 

Pre-Baptism Program
A Pre-Baptism sacramental program is required for expectant parents to update their knowledge of this sacrament with the focus on community.   Couples and single parents share their faith experience and traditions with expectant parents. This class is required prior to the baptism of the first child in a family, but not necessary to attend for further children.  

Pre-Cana Team
A team of volunteers plans a pre-cana day to assist couples preparing for marriage by providing guidance in areas such as communications skills, decision making with time and money, lifestyles, marital adjustments, sexuality, and spirituality. Team members take part in active presentations and hosting couples throughout the day-long retreat.  

Servers
Altar server positions are open to students in grades 5-8.  Training sessions are available in the fall and spring.
