MINISTRIES OF LITURGY & WORSHIP

WORSHIP MINISTRY TEAM
The Worship Ministry Team plans and coordinates the Liturgical celebrations of our parish. Bringing together our Liturgical ministries, pastoral musicians and members of the Art & Environment team, they work to plan and coordinate prayerful celebrations of the Liturgy. They also strive to enrich our people's understanding of the Mass. Volunteers are asked to make a one-year commitment. Contact Diane Kubus (810) 229-8624 ext. 128

MINISTERS OF THE EUCHARIST
The role of the Minister of the Eucharist is to serve the Assembly, the Body of Christ which means Eucharistic ministers not only distribute the Body of Christ to the people, but also welcome them as the Body of Christ as they enter the building for Liturgy. Ministers of the Eucharist need to arrive 20 - 30 minutes before the Liturgy to assure that the bread, wine, water and vessels are ready. They then welcome the people of God, the Body of Christ as they enter. After the Liturgy they are responsible for washing all the vessels and returning them to wherever they will be needed.

MINISTERS OF THE WORD
The role of the Minister of the Word is to serve the Assembly by bringing the Word of God to life. Since the assembly does not have the readings, it is all the more important that the minister is well prepared, has clear, understandable diction, and that the readings are proclaimed with vitality and conviction. Ministers of the Word need to arrive 20 minutes before the Liturgy in order to familiarize themselves with the readings as they appear in the Lectionary and prepare for the introduction and General Intercessions.
