Lectors & Commentators

     Lectors share in the mission of proclaiming God’s Word to the worshiping community with the two readings.
     Commentators read the Introduction to the Mass, the Prayers of the Faithful, and the Announcements.

    Any confirmed (or to be confirmed this Fall) practicing Catholic is eligible to serve in this ministry.

    Lectors & Commentators will be alternated from week to week so those who have signed up will have an opportunity to do both.


     Sacristans help set up for Mass. They prepare the hosts, the wine, the vessels and all of the other necessary elements. Sacristans arrive at the church 30 minutes before Mass.
