MINISTER OF WORSHIP AND ART AND ENVIRONMENT
This ministry requires an eye for color and beauty, and an ability to visualize the total picture. Come, have fun and enjoy working with others as we decorate the Church for the Christmas and Easter Seasons.
MINISTER OF THE WORD (LECTOR)
This ministry involves a love and respect for the Word of God and joy in proclaiming it. Readings are done at the weekend liturgy at the Mass of your choice, and additional opportunities on Feast Days.
Eucharistic Ministers must be confirmed and have a love and respect for the Eucharist. We also need volunteers for funeral Masses during the year, and on Feast Days. There is no greater joy than distributing our Lord in Holy Communion.
This ministry requires people with a warm, welcoming presence that is out-going in Christian hospitality, and the ability to respond to situations that arise when people need assistance.
Altar servers must have made First Eucharist and be in 4th grade or above, possess a respect for worship, and an ability to learn procedures. There must be a sense of responsibility for the commitment, and the server must have transportation to church. Servers that attend St. John's School may also serve at funeral Masses.
Our purpose is "to be the presence of Christ" to the gathering community. You may be the first friendly face a stranger sees. The primary ministry of the greeter is to help people feel welcome as they gather for Liturgy. An open door and warm smile of the greeter helps to set the tone for the Eucharistic celebration, offering hospitality in the name of the Lord. Greeters are those who, almost without trying, can put others at ease and convey the message that all those who enter the doors at St. John the Baptist Church are welcome!
Working in conjunction with the ushers and greeters, this group is responsible for locking the doors, letting any latecomers in during Mass, and handling any emergencies that may arise. The safety of all who enter our doors is of utmost importance to us.
