Ministries

Our community is blessed with a wealth of talented, enthusiastic and caring people who work very hard to make our liturgies welcoming and prayerful.  It takes many people in many different roles to accomplish the work of liturgy.  Below is a list of ministries that are offered through our parish.

If you have any questions or would like to join a ministry, please call the office at 210-434-3247.

 

Liturgy Committee

The liturgy is an extraordinary means of evangelizing.  The Liturgy Committee works to enrich the public prayer life of the parish as they come together in worship.  For the liturgy to be carried out properly and fruitfully, the formation of celebrants and leaders must be carefully followed.  Lectors, Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist, Choir Directors, and Sacristans are important participants in the Liturgy.  This committee reviews how each ministry can enhance the parish worship experience.  The Liturgy Committee oversees planning and scheduling the liturgical celebrations for seasonal and special events so that every religious regulation is complied with.  This committee meets every quarter to plan all mass details of the liturgical calendar.
