Liturgical Ministries

 

These are the ministries concerned with public worship in the Church; specifically, the Mass.  Some are accomplished outside the service of the Mass itself or behind the scene and not noted by the congregation. Others have a more specific and public role that can be seen during the Mass.  All of these ministries work together to support and enhance the Liturgy and the personal worship experience of the congregation.  When done well, the minister fades and only Christ and His Word are revealed. These Ministries are:
 
 
Altar Servers and Acolytes
Audio-Visual Ministry
