The Pastoral Council counts among its membership, all of those who through the invitation of the pastor, lovingly respond to Chirst's call to advise the pastor in his administration of the parish. They are the extra eyes and ears of the pastor, as they concern themselves with the needs of all parish members, and advise the pastor concerning those programs and activities, which affects the liturgical, spiritual and social life of the parish. They involve themselves, aiding and/or giving leadership to the activities and/or prgrams, in which they have interest. They lovingly point out to the pastor the programs or activities that are either popular or unpopular with the parish membership. They keep their ears to the ground and are able to articulate the positives and negatives of what they hear.

Senior Altar Server/Sacristan

Men and women who arrive early and help the priest prepare the church for Daily Mass and/or Funeral Masses. They help to make the church and altar ready for liturgy, and clean up after the Mass. Those who respond to Christ's call to this service, are very helpful to the pastor or priest who will preside at the Masses or services. Their service greatly enhances the worship of our faith community.

Hospitality/Usher

Those who respond to this call, smilingly greet and welcome all who come to the door of the church for Mass or service, they distribute the worship aids as persons enter, and if the person/s cannot see an unoccupied pew, shows them to a pew. These greeters usually take up the collection. In addition, they ensure that someone (a family), brings up the gifts at the time of the Preparation of the Gifts and Altar. After the Mass, they police the church environs, making sure it is ready for the next Mass or Service.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Two distinct ministries fall under this title of ministry. There are persons who respond to Christ's call to distribute the Body and Blood of the Lord at Mass. After training, they receive the commission from the sisters and brothers of the parish for this ministry. There are also those, who having an affinity for service to the sick or elderly of our parish, and desire to visit and bring Communion to those who cannot come to Mass on a regular basis each week. These Extrordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are trained in the ministry to the sick and homebound. (This includes those in nursing homes and shut-ins usually within our parish boundaries). They receive a commission for this service by the sisters and brothers of the parish. Then, during the Mass, they receive their pyx with the Eucharist inside and carry communion to the parishioner's residence. They conduct a brief Liturgy of the Word, and share some words from the homily they heard at Mass, and pray with the person to whom they brought Jesus in the Eucharistic species.

Proclaimers of the Word/Lector
