Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion Lay ministers are mandated by the pastor, every 3 years, with the approval of the bishop, as distributors of the Holy Eucharist at Masses in Risen Christ Parish, parish nursing homes and the homebound within the parish.
Lectors A lector is one who proclaims God’s Word during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. It involves giving witness to God in His Sacred Word. Persons adept at public speaking and interested in assisting in this ministry are encouraged to volunteer.
Ushers Ushers serve the Parish by assisting at one of the weekend Masses on a regular basis. Ushers actively assist in making sure all parishioners are seated, help with the offertory collection, and distribute the bulletins after Mass.
Ambassadors Greeters at all weekend Masses help to provide a more welcoming environment for our Parish.
Altar Servers Boys and girls who have celebrated the sacraments of the Eucharist and Reconciliation and in the 4th grade or older are invited to assist at the weekend Masses as servers.
