Parish Ministries


Altar Servers

The role of assisting at Masses and other liturgies is a time-honored tradition in our Church. Boys and girls of the parish in fourth grade or higher are invited to become Altar Servers. They receive complete training in this role. As well, they are instructed in the importance of helping others worship God and Jesus Christ.  Once trained, the Altar Servers are placed on a monthly schedule.  For further details, please contact the rectory at 781-762-6080.


Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC)

The source and summit of our life as a people of God are the gifts of Christ’s Body and Blood, the Eucharist, and the community gathered to share in this Eucharist. Over time, the Church has seen the need for Lay Faithful to assist with the distribution of Communion at Masses and other Liturgies.  As well, Eucharistic Ministers assist the parish by bringing Communion to people who are unable to attend Mass.    Prior to being invited to join this ministry, parishioners are asked to speak with Mrs. Doris Hallee, Pastoral Associate, at 781-769-5354 ext 273.


Lectors

The proclamation of the Word of God at Masses and other Liturgies is one of the sources of faith, wisdom and understanding God and Jesus have given to the Church. Because of its importance, the Church takes great care in ensuring that the Spoken Word is proclaimed with dignity and reverence.  As a parish, we try our very best to fulfill these expectations.   Parishioners who are considering becoming Lectors are asked to speak with Mrs. Doris Hallee at 781-769-5354 ext 273.


Ushers

Ushers serve at each of the weekend Masses. They help seat parishioners, help receive the collection, distribute bulletins at the end of Mass, and answer any queries or situations that could affect the comfort and concentration of the parishioners at Mass. Please contact the rectory if you are interested in assisting us as an usher.
