Liturgical Ministers

Interested in joining a liturgical ministry?

Welcome!  I invite all who want to be more involved in our parish, specifically our liturgical celebrations (Mass) to reach out to me or anyone within the parish office. 

Liturgical ministry is an excellent opportunity to fulfill your baptismal call of service to one another. We will help individuals see where their talents and gifts that God has given can be best served to their fullest extent. Whether participation is through “behind the scenes” preparation and planning or through a public role of service within the Mass (as proclaimers, Eucharistic ministers, ushers, cantors/choir members, adult servers or student servers), parishioners’ contributions help our liturgies to be truly life-giving celebrations. Please prayerfully consider joining one of these ministries.

If anyone is willing and able, and would like some additional training, we are able to set up individual training at mutually agreeable times/dates. Please contact John Bonsanti at 636-671-0247 or john.bonsanti@gmail.com
