In order to promote active, conscious participation in the liturgy, students are invited and encouraged to serve as lectors, ministers of hospitality, music ministers, extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion, sacristans, and altar servers. Training is provided.
Lector: Proclaim the Word of God at Mass. Training is offered for those interested.
Ministers of Hospitality: If you’re outgoing, you can greet people at the door and get to know new people after Mass to make them feel comfortable.
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion: Distribute the Precious Body or Sacred Blood of our Lord during mass. Training will be provided for confirmed Catholics.
Sacristans: Sacristans prepare the Chapel for Mass each week. They are responsible for setting out the vestments, preparing the vessels, and lighting the candles.

Music Ministry: If you have musical talent, come use your gifts to praise God and lead us in worship and song!
