Liturgical Ministries

Worship Commission

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

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.

Altar Servers

Dependable young people fulfill an important need by ministering as altar servers at weekend liturgies. Students must be 9 years of age and/or in the fifth grade. Three servers are scheduled for and rotate throughout the 5 weekend Masses. Depending upon the number of volunteers, you will serve every 4 to 6 weeks. Christmas and Holy Week liturgies are scheduled on a volunteer basis. All servers must attend a training session to be held in the fall.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

This ministry puts you at the center of the Church’s life. The celebration of the Eucharist on the Lord’s Day is our most important activity. During the Liturgy of the Eucharist, extraordinary ministers assist the smooth execution of the distribution of Holy Communion. Any active, confirmed member of St. Anastasia may serve in this ministry. You will be assigned to team at the Mass of your choosing. Teams serve every 2-3 weeks depending upon the number of ministers available. Training will be provided for all new ministers. For more information contact Holly in the Parish Office (248) 689-8380.

Lectors

Lectors are the ministers that bring the Scriptures to life for all to hear. Mastery of public speaking is essential for proclaiming the Word of God. Lectors rotate between the Saturday evening and Sunday day Masses; frequency will depend upon the number of volunteers. For more information contact Holly in the Parish Office at (248) 689-8380.

Environment

Team members take on the task of creating an environment that draws the faithful more fully into prayer. Assistance is needed with planning, decorating on a seasonal basis. Year round help is needed to water the plants in the church. Contact Holly in the Parish Office (248) 689-8380 or by email.
