As a public reader of scripture, the minister proclaims the Word of God as His message is being delivered to the congregation. The Ministry of the Lector at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish is limited to approximately 50 members. This allows each lector to have the opportunity to participate in the celebration of the Mass at least once a month, as well as Holy Days and other special services. The ministers rotate in the roles of lector and commentator and Mass times. Orientation and training for all lectors/commentators is held once a year.
Welcoming of parishioners and guests before Mass. The position of Ministry Leader for this group is currently open. If you are interested in this stewardship opportunity, please contact the parish office at 721-1686.
The main mission of this ministry is to prepare for the community's creative and unique environments for liturgical celebrations of the sacraments, providing and enhancing the context for prayer and reflections. Members meet several times a year to plan, prepare, and execute all the activities associated with the rotating liturgical seasons.
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Music Ministry serves all aspects of parish life. Liturgical musicians are called to minister to the "people gathered" by inspiring them, through music, to celebrate Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. The Music Ministry is open to parishioners who are willing to share their talent in vocal and/or instrumental music, and at the same time exhibit a willingness to work with others, learning and growing in the understanding of liturgy. This ministry provides a great opportunity for the parishioners of all ages to become involved in our parish life.
Childcare is offered to parishioners during the Sunday 9 AM & 11 AM Masses.
Volunteers 8th grade and up are always welcome to assist during any of the Masses. Virtus training is required BEFORE serving with any children in the parish or school.
VIRTUS training is offered throughout the year at a variety of locations throughout the Diocese.
