Ministries at St.Vital are an important way to serve our church. Participating in a parish ministry is also a great way to get involved in parish life.
If you would like to learn more about ministries in the church please read the brief comments below. You can also contact Maxine for more information or to get involved with a ministry.
If you already have a ministry in the church, thank you for giving of your time and talent in this way. You can select from the following links in order to access your schedule as well as any important announcements:
Adult serving is one of the oldest ministries in the Church. It is a great opportunity to grow closer to God and to serve in a very solemn manner at the Mass.
A lector is the person who proclaims the first or second reading at Mass. This person also may lead the Prayers of the Faithful at Mass.
Ushers & Greeters
The ushers and greeters are the people that our parishioners and visitors first meet upon entering the Church.
Eucharistic Ministers assist the clergy to serve Holy Communion to our brothers and sisters in Christ at Mass.
Presenters of the Gifts
Presenters of the gifts offer the bread, wine and collection to the priest, a ritual that symbolizes the entire assembly’s faith and commitment to love and serve God in the example of Christ.
If you have not already done so, all individuals involved with different ministries will need to fill out a volunteer application form (found here) and submit it to Jeanette at the parish office.
Also, we encourage you, if you have not already, to complete a Called to Protect™ Workshop. Please visit the diocesan website for upcoming dates and to register.
Called to protect workshop
The parish will be having another Called to Protect Workshop: TBA
This if for any volunteers that have not previously taken the workshop.
For more information about what Called to Protect is, or to find out other dates that you can attended within the archdiocese, please visit the archdiocesan website here.
