Sunday Celebration of the Word in the absence of a Priest with the distribution of Holy Communion.

We are looking for people who would be willing to lead Lay Led Services with distribution of Holy Communion in the absence of a priest should the need arise.

If this is something you would like to do, please contact the office.  Training sessions, as well as practice sessions, will be done prior to being asked to sign up on MSP (Ministry Scheduler Pro). 

Once prepared, your name will be added to MSP along with your preferred mass time and you will be added to the roster.  This enables you to know in advance your scheduled mass to prepare the readings, reflections, etc. should they be necessary.

This ministry of preparedness is exactly that- to prepare ourselves for the weekend’s readings should our priest be stranded or unavailable to preside.  Thank you in advance for considering this ministry.
