The liturgy is not only the starting point of the Christian life, as the source of our strength and the basis of our encounter with God, but is also the end-point of our Christian life, as a foretaste of the heavenly banquet where we will be united as One with God, forever and ever.
The Altar Guild works in maintaining tidiness and reverence over all altar linens and cloths.
The Altar Servers function as the clerical assistants on the altar in all Liturgical events. You can look forward to being on the altar helping set up the altar with the gifts, assisting the priests with the missal, and bringing life to the mass with your youthful presence.
The Eucharistic Ministers distribute Holy Communion during Mass. If you feel called to bringing our Lord directly to the people then consider becoming a Eucharistic Minister.
The Greeter Ministry welcomes people into the church during Masses and provides all who enter our church a sense of joy, sincerity, peace, and comfort.
The Homebound Ministry brings Holy Communion and fellowship to those who are homebound. This ministry provides an excellent opportunity to be Christ-like to those who are in most need of our Lord. If you feel called to bring our Lord to the elderly, the sick, and all those who are unable to come to Church then the Homebound Ministry might be your calling!
The Hospital Ministry brings Holy Communion to persons in the hospital. Bringing Communion to those who are vulnerable in hospitals is the perfect way to bring Christ to those who yearn for His presence.
Lectors proclaim God's word during Mass and other liturgical celebrations throughout the year. Open to adults and confirmed youth. If you feel called to proclaiming God's word then being a lector might be for you!
The Music Ministry leads the parish in song during the Mass. It is not necessary to be able to read music, only to be able to sing on pitch, blend with the group, and convey a sense of prayer through song.
The Nursing Home Ministry brings Holy Communion and fellowship to those at local senior care facilities. If you feel called to help the elderly and bring Christ to the lives of all those who cannot always make it to mass, this ministry is for you!
The Prison Ministry is a diocesan wide ministry that is tied with the Kolbe Ministry in the Diocese of Dallas. The Prison Ministry holds retreats within different correctional systems within the Dallas Forth-worth area to bring Christ to those who are in need. There is special training involved in terms of ministering and bringing Christ to inmates that is provided by the Diocese.
Safety Ministers strive to provide a safe and secure environment for our parishioners to gather and worship together. The Safety Ministers prevent/mitigate disturbances by relying on established skills and expertise obtained through their career/experience. To participate, you must have experience in active or retired law enforcement, EMS/fire, government, certified security, military, or martial arts.
Ushers help assist in the logistics of the mass. Ushers have responsibilities such as assisting in seating, taking up the collection, directing parishioners during Holy Communion and distribution of bulletins at the end of mass. They work together with the Safety Ministers ensuring everyone is safe and accommodated in the pews.
