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.

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.

The adult choir sings at 10:30 am Mass on Sundays, from Labor Day to Memorial Day, as well as various Holy Day Masses throughout the year. Choir rehearsals are on Wednesdays at 7:15 pm in the church. Cantors, organists, and pianists are needed for all weekend Masses, and are scheduled quarterly.
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.
