Liturgical Ministries

Altar servers have been assisting in the celebration of the Holy Eucharist since the early years of the Church.  Altar servers assist the celebrant with the duties of ensuring preparations for the liturgy are successfully carried out and assist the celebrant throughout the celebration of the Mass.   At Holy Trinity servers begin once they reach the sixth grade and may continue in service until they graduate from high school.  New servers are trained annually  in the month of March and receive initial assignments the follow summer, in June.   Anyone between  Sixth grade and  Junior in high school can be trained and become an Altar Server.   If you are interested or have questions about serving; contact, or have your parents contact, Deacon Mike Marvin at 829-1518.

Extra Ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Extra Ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are given the great honor of distributing the body and blood of Jesus Christ.  This group is essential for a sacramental faith like that of the Roman Catholic church.  If you believe that you are being called to this ministry,  please mention your interest to any one of the priests or deacons.

Ushers

Ushers seat people within the sanctuary. The usher located along the pews and seating area walks a person to a specific seating area, commonly filling up the front pews and moving toward the back. The usher will smile, ask if there is any special seating arrangement necessary, and thank the person for attending services, before moving back to her assigned location.

If you would like to become an usher at Holy Trinity or are interested in learning more about the ministry, please contact the parish office.

Lector / Reader

This ministry is dedicated to God’s living word as proclaimed by the Lector.  One way to proclaim His Word in Scripture is through the use of structured verse speaking – simple in concept and dynamic in application. By building the reading line by line from the beginning and maintaining a flow of thought to the end, the life contained within a scriptural reading (or any liturgical proclamation) can be enhanced by the Lector applying the elements or tools of this structural format.

To become a lector contact the parish office.  Good strong voices are always appreciated.
