Worship Ministry

Have you ever thought about becoming a Lector, Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, Altar Server, Usher, Greeter or Sacristan, but were unsure of exactly what would be expected of you? We welcome all to consider our liturgical ministries!

Parish Life Events

Altar Servers

Altar servers assist the priest during the celebration of the Mass. These young  men and women are an essential component of a well-run liturgy. We would like more participants from grades 4 through 8. See current bulletin for schedule.

Eucharistic Ministers

Auxiliary or Eucharistic Ministers distribute the Eucharist to the community as minsters of the Cup or the Host during Mass. Ministers are mandated after completing the training program which is offered several times during the year.

Lectors

Lectors volunteer to proclaim the readings of the Mass. They help to spread the message of the readings and the lessons the congregation take away with them.

 

 

Catechists

Catechists share their special talents for St. Patricia’s Religious Education Programs.

Sacristan

Sacristans are responsible for the upkeep of the church proper, especially the sacristy and sanctuary.  They oversee the maintenance of vestments for the priests and acolytes; assure that vessels for communion are stored properly and that all other church furnishings are carefully attended to.  

 

Ushers

Ushers are the first people encountered by parishioners when they enter the worship environment.  Ushers greet, answer questions, seat, recruit gift bearers, take up collections, and organize communion processions.  This ministry is available to all parishioners, including our youth.

 

We are in need of volunteer ushers to help during the weekend Masses. Ladies and Gentlemen are invited to consider this importat ministry. If you would like to volunteer or have any questions, please call Steve Fedor at 708-751-2016.

Eucharistic Adoration

Eucharistic Adoration is held on the first Sunday of the month in Church from 3:00 to 6:45 PM ending with a Benediction.  This is meditative prayer with the Eucharistic Lord.
