The role of the server is a privileged ministry. Individuals who are in fourth grade or older, have received their First Communion, and attend Mass regularly are welcome to sign up to be an Altar Server.
Altar Ministry Guild
This ministry is responsible for maintaining and cleaning the Altar, sacred vessels and laundering the linens used during our Mass Liturgy.
Church Cleaning Guild
This ministry is made up of a small group who vacuum the church carpet and dust the pews, etc., keeping our church clean for the weekend Masses.
These ministers provide a very special service of hospitality. They are the first people that visitors or parishioners meet when they come to Sacred Heart for Mass. We show our great hospitality by welcoming them with Christian love.
The role of the lector is to proclaim the Word of God at parish liturgies. Lectors need to have the ability to read aloud clearly and well, with an understanding of scripture.
They are responsible for seating parishioners, assisting with keeping the reverence during the Mass, taking up the collection, distributing any timely materials after Mass, and straightening hymnals and Mass booklets after each Mass.
Ministers to the Homebound
Experienced Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers share Jesus Christ in the Eucharistic with those members of our community unable to join us here at Sacred Heard due to health issues. In addition to visiting individuals, these ministers also visit the area nursing homes.
Classes are held after the Sunday 9 am mass. Classes start at 10:15 am and last one hour. The religious education that our children receive is very important to prepare them for the Sacraments and life. Teachers and assistants are always needed. Please consider this great ministry of sharing your faith.
Parish Social Events
This committee organizes and prepares the food/snacks for the many parish social events. This is a great way to meet and get to know the whole Parish community. Many events are scheduled each year so watch the calendar. Volunteers are needed for planning and to help on the day of the event.
This ministry provides food for the family of the deceased and their friends on the day of the funeral. These volunteers coordinate and facilitate the luncheons. Parish members are asked to support these luncheons by providing a covered dish and by helping serve.
Sunday Socials offer parishioners the opportunity to share a few minutes of fellowship on Sunday morning after the 9 am Mass. These weekly gatherings are enhanced with coffee and breakfast breads. What's better than sharing food with your fellow parishioners?! New volunteers are always welcome to join this ministry.
