Sharing Our Faith
In the celebration of the sacraments, especially in the Eucharist, we share our faith in the presence of the Risen Lord, and we are empowered by the Spirit to share that faith with others. The following are the ministries that help us share our faith. If you would like more information or to participate in any of these ministries, please call the parish office at 330-733-9944.
These ministers proclaim the Word of God at Mass, and are scheduled monthly, as well as for other celebrations. Training is provided as needed.
These ministers assist with the distribution of communion at Masses, and may also take Communion to the homebound.
Ushers / Hospitality Ministers
This traditional ministry welcomes visitors, takes up the collection, and assists in emergencies. Men and women of the parish have served as ushers in church for many years.
Altar servers are scheduled to assist at weekend Masses as well as weddings and funerals. This ministry is for young people who are in the seventh grade and older. Adult servers assist at 8:00 AM Mass on Sunday mornings. Training for both adult and youth servers is provided. Servers are usually scheduled for Mass about once a month.
Children's Liturgy of the Word
This ministry is celebrated during the 10:30 Mass each Sunday to help younger children of the parish understand the message of the Sunday Scripture readings. The children leave the Mass during the Opening Rite, and return at the time of the offering. Children's Liturgy leaders serve approximately once a month. Training is provided.
A group of decorators gather occasionally during the year to provide an appropriate worship environment for our liturgical celebrations. Help is especially needed at Easter and Christmas.
