If you are interested, please contact Campus Ministry at or by filling out the interest form

Lectors proclaim the Word of God in the scriptures so that the worshipping assembly can hear Christ speaking to them in their own time.

Acolytes (Altar Servers) assist the presider at the altar.

Extraordinary Ministers of  Holy Communion enable the assembly to unite themselves with Christ, and with one another, by assisting with the distrubution of the Body and the Blood of Christ during the communion rite.

Ministers of Hospitality represent the entire assembly in creating a welcoming atmosphere for all who come to worship.

Musicians, Artists, Sacristans, and Dancers use their particular gifts to enhance the worship of the entire community.
