Liturgical Ministers and Preparation
Liturgical ministers enable and enliven the prayer of our community. Saint Mary’s worship life is the heart of our community. You can serve in many ways:
- Extraordinary minister of Holy Communion
- Altar Server
- Musician (singer or instrumentalist)
- Hospitality minister
- Lay presider
- Lay preacher
Campus Ministry forms ministers through reflection and presentation. Our goal is that you have confidence to serve the community with competence and reverence. Preparation includes:
- Liturgical ministry formation. Explore what liturgy is and what it means for your life.
- Practicum sessions. Learn the skills and logistics of your particular ministry.
- Liturgy preparation. Reflect on the upcoming Sunday’s scripture readings with a group of peers.
- Music rehearsals. Sing and play through the songs with which you lead the community’s prayer.
- Workshops for lay presiders and preachers.
"Being involved as a liturgical minister challenges me to ask the question, ‘How am I the face of Christ to others?’ I am very thankful for the opportunity to serve in this way and, through ministering at mass, I have grown in my faith."
