Is God calling you to share His word aloud in worship? These volunteers read passages from Scripture during liturgy and serve approximately every two months. Contact Liturgical and Lay Reader Coordinator Robert Linehan to learn more.

Ushers

Does your faith give you confidence to step forward, give direction, and answer questions? Ushers assist parishioners and visitors during Sunday worship and serve about one Sunday a month. Contact head usher Jeff Olsen to learn more.

 

 

Solemn man leads church procession

Vergers

Vergers add an important ceremonial and symbolic element to a church service. They remind us that a service works best with order and rhythm. They help the clergy, freeing them from having to worry about every single element of a service, like getting people lined up for a procession. A verger leads the liturgical procession by setting a rhythm and, symbolically, pointing a way forward. Vergers typically serve about once a month. If you feel called to participate in liturgy by leading the way as a verger, contact Contact Liturgical and Lay Reader Coordinator Robert Linehan to learn more.
