If you would like to become part of one of our Ministries at St. Benedict, please contact the Front Office at office@stbenedict.net  and we will connect you with the ministry head.

Altar Servers
Servers assist the priest at regular Masses, and other liturgies. Boys and Girls ages 9-18 who have received First Penance and First Eucharist are welcome to join. stbaltarservers@gmail.com

Eucharistic Ministers
Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist assist by administering the Sacred Body and Precious Blood of Christ. Belief in and a deep commitment to the true presence of Christ in the Eucharist is essential for service. Confirmed adults welcome.

Lectors (Readers at Mass)
Lectors are members of the parish who “Proclaim the Word” at Mass, make announcements, and read the Prayers of the Faithful. Lectors are require a willingness to grow in faith, a sincere desire to study the bible and its meaning and the ability to speak effectively before large groups. All ages are encouraged to join this ministry.

Music Ministry
Our mission is to spread the “good news” of Christ through excellence in music. We offer programs from preschool through adults. With eight choirs, plus additional groups, including Hispanic, there is a musical opportunity for everyone.

Sacristans
Sacristans prepare our church for parish liturgical celebrations. As they put the physical items in place that we need to celebrate, it is through these actions that they also  communicate to the assembly to prepare their hearts for worship. Ultimately, they work alongside other ministry leaders to encourage full, conscious, active participation for all those gathered for worship.

Ushers
This ministry helps the parishioners with seating during weekend Masses and includes taking up the collection and helping flow of Communion traffic. No experience needed.
