Ministries at Mass

  • Ministry at Mass

     

    Greeters
    We are open to any interested persons becoming a Greeter, and to do so please contact the parish office at 585-352-5481. Our greeters do not count or handle the collection.

    Lectors
     A great way to serve the parish community is to assist in the celebration of the Mass as a lector.  God speaks to us through the Scriptures.  A lector is one who proclaims the Word of God at Mass and other services.  Lectors read 1st and 2nd Readings of Sacred Scripture, the Prayers of Petition, and any announcements before Mass. They serve God by communicating His words to the parish community and experience the joy that comes from serving the Lord and others
     
    Youth Altar Servers 
    Youth Altar Servers are needed for all Masses with a willingness to help Father. Training is available. Other needs in the ministry area include those who are willing to wash and/or replace albs, and recruit servers for Mass times.

    Altar Servers (Adult Altar Services and Sacristans)
    Adult Altar Servers/Sacristans perform various duties with the set-up, and activities during and after Mass. Adult Servers often assist at funerals. No prior skills are needed as training is available.

    Music Ministry
    St. John's has a variety of music styles at the Masses. This ministry is always in need of more voices and talented musicians.

    There are currently two groups, the Saturday Music Group and the Sunday Choir.

    Saturday Music Group sings at the 5PM Mass on Saturdays, and rehearses Tuesdays at 7:30PM.  The Saturday group focus on music from the last several decades (contemporary catholic church setting music)
