Liturgical Ministries

Each weekend, it takes over 50 volunteers to ensure we have a spiritually fulfilling worship experience at St. John Vianney. Our volunteers bless us with their talents and time to ensure a faith-filled experience.

Greeter: The ministry of hospitality has many faces, and the greeter at the door has the first opportunity to show visitors and parishioners the face of our Catholic community. A warm welcome helps people begin their worship time on a positive note.

Usher: Another face in our ministry of hospitality belongs to our ushers. Ushers help people find a place to sit in the assembly, help answer questions, and pass the baskets at the time of the collection of gifts.

Lector: Proclaiming the Word with reverence is an important part of our Mass. Individuals with a gift for sharing the Word enhance the worship experience for our parishioners and guests.

Gift Bearers: Bringing our gifts to the altar is a symbolic and moving element of the Mass. Anyone can participate in this ministry, and it is a great way for families to get involved in the Mass.

Eucharistic Minister: Having received the greatest of gifts – the Eucharist – we are then sent to serve others the Body and Blood of Christ. Reverence for the Eucharist enables us to share this gift with others.

Altar Servers: Students in grades 4 and older have the opportunity to enhance the worship experience for themselves and parishioners by assisting Father during Mass as an altar server.

Sacristan: Ensuring that all the details are in place for Mass to be celebrated fully and joyfully, Sacristans help enhance our worship experience. Sacristans should be at least 14 years old.

Cantor/Choir: Our mission is to strengthen the total prayer life of St. Mary’s Community by providing a welcoming and nurturing environment. We serve as a support team for our pastor, other parish committees and our total parish community as together we grow in The Body of Christ.
