MINISTERS OF WELCOME
Our ushers greet parishioners and guests at all of the Sunday Masses as well as take up the collection and pass out bulletins following our celebration. If you have any questions about the parish or are interested in volunteering as a Minister of Welcome, please see one of our ushers.
Our weekend celebrations are greatly enhanced by the talent and commitment of those who share their voices and musical gifts. Our music ministry includes adult, children, and men's choirs. The adult choir gathers on Wednesday evenings to prepare to lead us in song. Click here for more information on our music ministry.
