Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
Our Sunday celebration of Mass involves so many people; we are particularly grateful for those who currently assist as Liturgical Ministers. At this time, we would like to send out a call for all of these ministries. However, our greatest need is for Altar Servers. We are asking for youth in grade 3 or older. Adults and families are also welcome. Please consider signing up for the Mass you attend.
If you are interested or would like more information about serving in any of these ministries, please contact the church office at (901) 276-1412 or firstname.lastname@example.org
