Sunday Ministries

Childcare at 9am Mass

Child care is now available during the 9:00 am Mass on Sunday mornings. Child care is available for children 6 months through Pre-K. Volunteers will be available beginning at 8:45 am. Child care is provided by parish volunteers. An adult, who has passed our Safe Environment training, is always present as well as teen volunteers. We are looking for volunteers to help with this Sunday morning ministry. If you or your teen would like to volunteer to help with our Child Care during the 9:00 am Mass, please contact Julie Sheridan (julie@holycrossdewitt.org). Thank you!

 

Altar Servers

Altar servers assist with the preparation and execution of the Mass. They assist the liturgical coordinator whenever possible while anticipating the needs of the presider. Any student who has received their First Communion is eligible to be on our Altar Server team. If your child is interested in this opportunity, please contact the parish office.

 

Eucharistic Minister

Eucharistic Ministers have the privilege to share in the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass. The communion rite is the heart and center of the entire Mass. The gathering of the community, the proclamation of God’s Word, the remembering and thanksgiving and offering in the Eucharistic prayer — all are directed toward the moment of communion in which we, fed with His own Body and Blood, are made one in the Lord. A primary qualification for ministers of Communion is that they be by nature interested in, caring about, and at ease with other people. All who gather at the table of the Lord do so as brothers and sisters in the Lord, and must be welcomed there as such.

 

Lector

As a lector, you have the task of making God present in the Liturgy of the Word for our community. Lectors proclaim God’s word at our Masses. Lectors are responsible for two readings and the prayer of the faithful. If you are interested in becoming a lector, please contact the parish office.
