This page will contain the monthly schedules for Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, Ushers and Altar Servers. God bless all!
The October schedules are attached below and you will notice some dramatic changes have been made.For some time now, there have been many people saying that we don’t really need 7 servers at communion for each mass. After having a few of our ministers withdraw from the program, it has finally become a necessity to reduce the people serving at mass. After discussion with a few elders of the parish and with Father Cole himself, we have dropped the number from 7 down to 3 serving at the regular masses, and 1 serving at 5:00 PM on Sundays.What this means for us is that there will be communion served to our parishioners AT THE FRONT ALTAR ONLY, no service will be provided at the break.
All those individuals who have handicaps or difficulty maneuvering during mass should come to the front pew or the front of the side chapel to be served. In addition, there will be an individual sent from upstairs to accept communion for distribution to our choir members. A special paten will be made availalbe for this purpose.
We are starting with October only and hope that it goes well so that moving forward it will be a good thing for the parish.
If you want to provide personal feedback on this issue, please feel free to email me or Father Cole with your observations. Thank you for all your loyal service!!
No changes are being made to our Lector or Altar Server schedules. We remain in need of individuals at all masses for those purposes. If you see the mass is lacking in that area, please feel free to step forward.
