LITURGICAL MINISTRIES

Ministry of Word:  At Blessed Sacrament lectors proclaim sacred scripture at Mass, breaking open thoughtful proclamation of God’s Holy Word. If you would like to be a Lector contact our parish office or fill the Liturgical Form.

 

Ministry of Holy Eucharist: At Blessed Sacrament ministers are privileged to share in what is most central to our faith. They participate in the sacred liturgy by assisting the priest and deacon in the distribution of the Holy Communion under both species of bread and wine. If you would like to be a Eucharist Minister contact our parish office or fill the Liturgical Form.

 

Ministry of Hospitality: At Blessed Sacrament ushers and greeters welcome parishioners and visitors who gather for worship by their presence, by a word of welcome and by giving out the Sunday bulletins and help with the collections. If you would like to be an usher or a greeter in our parish contact our parish office or fill the Liturgical Form.

 

Ministry of Serving: At Blessed Sacrament altar servers assist the priest at Mass as did acolytes in the early church. In our parish both boys and girls perform their function with dedication, graciousness and commitment. If you would like to be an altar server, contact our parish office or fill the Liturgical Form.

 

Ministry of Music: Musicians make use of instruments and voices to support the parish congregation in praising God in songs. Music belongs to the assembly, is integral to liturgy, and helps make our worship worathy of the Lord. If you would like to become a choir participant contact our parish office, contact our Music Director Mary Lynn Giacobbe, or fill the Liturgical Form.

 

Ministry of Assembly: All who gather for worship and who share in the celebration of Eucharist also share in the ministry. St. Paul refers to Christians as a “priestly people” who share with the ordained, ministerial priesthood in bringing the Lord present upon the altar and offering him to his Father as the best possible gift we are privileged to offer. Today we are not mere spectators but participants in the sacred action which re-enacts both Calvary and the Last Supper, and which makes it possible for us to be in touch with our God.

Liturgy Committee (LT): At Blessed Sacrament Parish, LT functions primarily as an advisory body to pastor in liturgical matters in the parish. LT exists principally to enhance the living experience of people of God as they come together to sustain the vision of the kingdom of God in Jesus Christ. The LT familiarizes itself with the revised General Instruction of the Roman Missal (G.I.R.M) which stresses the importance of directions about preparation of

people’s hearts and minds, and of the places, rites, and texts for the celebration of the Most Holy Eucharist and other Sacraments of the church.

 

Liturgy Committee meets monthly to discuss and plan for upcoming Masses and special events. It also evaluates qualities of liturgical celebrations in the parish.
