Boys and girls, 5th grade and up, assist the priests and deacons at Mass.
Spiritual formation and on-going support are provided.
We proclaim the Word of God by serving as lectors at Mass on Sundays. Typically, lectors are scheduled for two masses of their choice per month.
We provide musical leadership at Masses. Opportunities exist for anyone (young or old) interested in sharing their musical gifts through singing, playing an instrument or providing administrative support.
Contribute to parish prayer by your willingness to give your valuable time to making St. Anthony's liturgy a joyful uplifting time in the Lord's house. Liturgical decorations also are used to foster a mood, sometimes of festivity and at other times of penitence or anticipation, but always of dignity and hospitality. The Liturgy is where we begin when thinking about seasonal decorations. Our space needs to be renewed just as we do. Please come and help with your fresh ideas and energy. Your very presence may contribute to a climate of hospitality that leads to participation in the liturgy by all of us. There is much that can be done for our wonderful church space. The possibilities are endless. Please call if you would like to help.
We assist the priests by distributing the Body and Blood of our Lord at Masses. We offer several training sessions each year.
We make meaningful visits to the ill and homebound, and to their families and caregivers. We bring the Word of Christ and Eucharist to those who cannot attend mass, linking them to the life of the parish.
We share Christ's love with men and women living behind bars. Volunteers minister in many ways: music, prayer & faith sharing groups, bible study, academic studies, and by bringing the Eucharist to the inmates.
