Our Liturgical Ministries

If you would like to get on the schedule to volunteer or participate in any of these ministries, please contact our office at 770-251-5353. 

 

Lector

Lectors provide a valuable service to our parish family. During the Liturgy of the Word during the Mass, lectors effectively, and clearly proclaim the Word of God. Any parishioner, who can comfortably and clearly proclaim the readings and psalms is welcomed to be trained so that they may serve St. George as a Lector.

Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are laypersons who assist in the Mass by helping our Priests and Deacons distribute Holy Communion. Eucharistic Ministers also take the Eucharist to the homebound of our parish. This important ministry is open to all adult members of our parish. Once trained, Eucharistic Ministers receive a three year Commission from our Pastor to participate in this ministry.

Music Ministry

If you sing or play a musical instrument, consider joining one of the choirs at St. George. The adult choir sings at all Masses and presents a concert on Christmas Eve at 11:30pm. The choir is also available for weddings and funerals. The rehearsal for members of the adult choir is Tuesday evenings at 7pm in the choir room off of the Parish Hall.

 

The St. George children's choir is back and Dock Anderson has accepted to coordinate it again. The choir will meet on Thursdays from 5:30pm - 6:30pm down in the Preschool. The choir is for students between the 3rd and 6th grade. The first class will be on Thursday, October 4, 2018. To register your child, stop by the faith formation table after Mass or come by the parish office during the week.

Elijah Cup

The Elijah Cup is a ministry of prayer. After Mass, an individual or family receives this consecrated chalice and places it honorably in their home. It provides a focal point while praying for vocations to the priesthood, permanent diaconate, and religious life. After praying for vocations each day that week, the Elijah Cup is returned to the church before mass on Saturday evening. “Every vocation is a gift from God which must be explored by prayer and merited by the witness of a holy life.” — Pope John Paul II

Altar Server

Altar Servers provide an important function at St. George in their service at the Lord’s Table. Altar Servers are instructed on how to assist at Mass. Once trained, Altar Servers are added to the Mass rotation based on their availability. Depending on the number of Altar Servers available for each mass, they usually end up serving once or twice per month. The Ministry of Altar Server is open to boys and girls who have reached the fourth grade and to all other parishioners of any age. Arrangements may be made in the schedule to permit parents and children to serve at the same Mass.

Usher

Ushers are the first to “meet and greet” the faithful and visitors at each Mass. In their service, Ushers assist in seating people as they enter the church, select a family to participate in the presentation of the gifts during the offertory, coordinate the offertory collection, distribute bulletins after Mass, and assist in any other way needed by our Clergy.

Sacristan

Sacristans are the ones who carefully arrange the liturgical books, vestments, and other things(cruets, chalices, ciboria, linens, oils, processional crosses, candles and torches) necessary in the celebration of the mass.

God of Glory, your beloved Son has shown us that true worship comes from humble and contrite hearts.

Bless our brothers and sisters, who have responded to the needs of our parish and wish to commit themselves to your service as altar servers, lectors, eucharistic ministers, sacristans, ushers, and musicians.

Grant that their ministry may be fruitful and our worship pleasing in your sight.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen
