WORSHIP

ALTAR SERVERS

 Altar Servers are students in 6th grade (and older) who assist the priest in celebration of the liturgy.  All servers should display a desire to participate in an intimate way during the Holy Service of the Mass.  It is an extreme privilege to kneel so close to the altar as our loving Savior, Jesus Christ, becomes truly present upon the altar.  Training is held in May for St. Peter students and a summer training session is available to all students wishing to serve at weekday or weekend Mass.

EXTRAORDINARY EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS 

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion will help and assist the priest in the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass. This can also include delivery of communion to the homebound. This “Extraordinary Minister" must have Pastor's approval and Diocesan training every 5 years.  Please call the Parish Office to schedule a time to meet with Father Gorges.

LECTORS/COMMENTATORS

Lectors/Commentators assist the congregation in participating in the Mass. These individuals need a commitment to continued improvement of speaking skills and must become familiar with the readings for the Mass. The Lector proclaims the first and second readings during Mass.  The Commentator reads the Petitions and announces song titles.  Becoming a Lector and Commentator is a true calling from the Holy Spirit and a serious commitment to your Faith and parish.

OFFERTORY GIFTS

Offertory Gifts are presented to our Lord at each Mass by parish families. All families are invited to participate by volunteering to carry up the Offertory gifts to the Priest at the weekend Masses.  As simple as this action is, it is so important to the Mass that it should never be casually delegated to others.
