Being prepared can greatly lessen the traumatic effects experienced both during and after the disaster. The Disaster Relief Team does not duplicate the efforts of any government agency active in emergency assistance.

Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers

The distribution of Communion at Mass is an honor for all of us as we are given the opportunity to bring Christ literally and physically to others at Mass and to those who are in hospitals, at home, or otherwise unable to attend Mass.

Ministers must first receive brief training and will be installed at Mass.

Meets the Third Thursday of each month at the home of the Kiessling's.

The proclamation of Sacred Scripture at Mass begins to fulfill our Great Commission: "to go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations... teaching them to observe all that [Jesus] commanded" (Matt 28: 19).  Mindful that this ministry was once reserved to the clerical state, the laity are invited to take a more active role in the liturgy of the Mass.  

Training is provided for lectors who will be installed at a Mass before their ministry begins.
