Sacristans care for and put in place the items needed for the liturgy so that the ministers and assembly may properly and prayerfully celebrate the Eucharist, sacraments, and opportunities of prayer in a reverent and orderly manner.
Greeters personally welcome those who come to worship, recognizing the presence of Christ in those they greet. They may also assist in distributing worship aids as needed.
Altar Servers are trained to assist at the celebration of the Eucharist, including weekend Masses, funerals, and weddings.
Lectors are trained and appointed to effectively proclaim the Scriptures at public worship.
The “Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion” or EMHC serves only when there is an insufficient number of priests or deacons to distribute the Eucharist.
