EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS This ministry provides a group of specially trained STA parishioners who distribute communion during all Masses, takes communion to the sick, and may lead communion services.

All Communion ministers go through a training session, with special training for those ministers who are willing to be head ministers. Head ministers set up for each Mass and wash all vessels used following each Mass.

Training sessions for all new and renewing ministers will be conducted as needed. Ministers serve about every 3-4 weeks.  They are expected to make a commitment for 3 years at a time.

 GREETERS This ministry is rooted in the biblical traditions of welcoming the stranger and building community.  Greeters represent the whole parish community.  By loving reverence shown to each person, we witness to the presence of God in the Assembly.  Key tasks include:

  • Welcoming people as they arrive for Mass
  • Addressing the congregation at the beginning of Mass
  • Arranging for the bread and wine to be brought up
  • Taking up the collection
  • Handing out bulletins and good wishes as people leave church
  • Straightening up church after Mass

The time commitment is one Mass per month.

LECTORS The lectors are the men and women who proclaim the readings at each weekend Masses. Practice time is needed to prepare well and a training session for new lectors is offered at various times throughout the year.

The time commitment is once or twice a month.

 MUSIC

Anyone who is interested in singing, playing an instrument and being part of a choir is welcome to join this ministry.  Practice is usually on Monday or Thursday evenings.

Calling STA music lovers!  

Enjoy singing praise to God? Then, please consider being apart of the STA Choir. We are trying to make sure there are enough people interested that we have safety in numbers.  The current plan is that the STA Choir would practice about 2 times a month and sing once a month.  The choir will be situated for ages 16 and up, but families of any age that would like to participate together are welcome.

 SUNDAY COUNTERS Two individuals, a head counter and an assistant counter, are needed each week to count, verify and then deposit the weekend’s collections along with copying checks and filling out the appropriate forms. No special skills are required for this important task; however, a commitment to confidentiality is appreciated. Volunteers are scheduled to count once every 6-8 weeks. Marcha Bennett
