Called to Serve….
All members of our parish are called to serve, to contribute to the vibrancy of our parishes and to grow spiritually! Our Catholic Community needs cantors at St. Joseph & St. Mary, lectors at the 5 pm Mass at St. Charles, and altar servers at all Masses, in addition to more ministers for each Mass. Prayerfully consider signing up to be involved with our liturgical ministries.
Ministry training times are listed below. Training is for all new ministers and existing ministers are encouraged to attend as a refresher. There will be time for questions at the end of each session.
Please stop by the Information Hub to learn more about these ministries and to sign-up for training sessions. You can also register for training online by clicking here. If you are interested in a liturgical ministry, but unable to attend the scheduled training session, alternate training sessions can be scheduled. For questions or to request an alternate training time, contact Rosemary Klackle (firstname.lastname@example.org, (616) 835-7239).
