The Worship Commission coordinates and oversees the planning for all liturgical celebrations of the Parish. They also coordinate and oversee the preparation, functioning and continuing education of all liturgical ministers of the Parish, i.e. lectors, extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist, musicians, servers, ushers, sacristans, etc. The Commission also discerns the Parish’s worship/liturgical/prayer needs and oversees the continuing education of the Parish on liturgical matters. Members are selected by lottery each spring.
Ushers are ministers of hospitality. They share the love and peace of Christ with others by being friendly, helpful, and hospitable at weekend liturgies. You will be assigned to a team at a Mass of your choosing and serve every third or fourth week. New ministers are required to attend a training session. Email Holly or call (248) 689-8380.
Dependable young people fulfill an important need by ministering as altar servers at weekend liturgies and holy days of obligation. Anyone who has started third grade and received first communion can volunteer. Three servers are scheduled for each Mass. The schedule does accommodate your preferred Mass times and servers are typically scheduled once a month. Christmas and Holy Week liturgies are scheduled on a volunteer basis. All servers attend a training session in the fall and a review session in the spring. Contact: Email Fr. Jim or call 248.689.8380 ext. 134. View current schedule.
