Our cantors provide leadership for congregational singing at our Sunday Masses and special liturgies. They assist in helping the congregation to learn new hymns and they are responsible for preparing the Responsorial Psalm each week. The cantor works in collaboration with the music director. A good cantor will have knowledge of hymns, an interest in liturgy, a pleasant voice, and a friendly disposition. Ability to read music is desired, but not required. Training is provided. Call Michael Klenk at 267-625-1888 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our choir is made up of women and men of high school age and older. No auditions required. Some members read music; most do not. Rehearsals are every Sunday evening from seven o’clock to nine o’clock in the church from September to May. We sing each Sunday at rotating Masses and for special parish celebrations. Contact Michael Klenk, 267-625-1888 or email@example.com.
“Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion” is the formal title of laypeople who distribute the Eucharist during Mass. As the title implies, there are also “ordinary ministers” – those who are literally “ordained” to the ministry namely bishops, priests, and deacons. These ministers are usually the first in order to distribute the Body and Blood of Christ, the deacon being the customary distributor of the cup. Individuals are invited to join this ministry by the Pastor.
Lectors have the opportunity to share the word of God at Sunday and weekday Masses. If interested in joining this ministry, please call Ann Marie: 215-675-1925.
