Liturgical functions, especially the Mass, are the heart and soul of a parish. In order for these liturgies to be conducted in the most dignified fashion it is essential to have a core of dedicated servers willing to make a commitment to the altar.
Our Cathedral Choir welcomes all who wish to participate in singing the prayers, the hymns and the rich treasury of anthems, which support the liturgy of the day. We are a diverse group of people from all backgrounds, high school through adult. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., September through May. We rehearse in the choir loft in the church. Choir Information
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion assist the priest and deacon with the distribution of Holy Communion during Mass, may also conduct a Holy Communion Service in the absence of a priest or deacon, and can take Holy Communion to the sick and home bound. They must be at least eighteen (18) years of age and have received the three Sacraments of Initiation.
The Lectors’ ministry bears the responsibility of proclaiming God’s word to the people in the service of the faith during Mass. Lectors serve at all weekend Masses, as well as 12:00 Noon Mass each weekday.
Ushers and Greeters
The Cathedral Usher Corps is comprised of dedicated men and women who serve the Cathedral by greeting parishioners and visitors alike before each mass, distributing bulletins and other materials at weekend services, helping to seat those standing in the rear of the church, taking up collections and securing the money, monitor communion lines to ensure safety of all, straighten the racks and picking up leftover papers at the end of mass. Any parish member, male or female, 18 years or older, may be an usher. Training is required.
