LITURGICAL MINISTRY AT CHRIST THE KING

The central and definitive act of any Catholic congregation is to gather on Sunday, the Lord’s Day, to remember Christ’s death and resurrection in the Eucharist. All members of the Church of Christ the King, by virtue of their baptism, are called to the ministry of assembling on Sunday to participate fully, actively, and consciously in the Church’s prayer. In the Sunday assembly, we praise and glorify God through the Spirit of Christ Jesus and we perform an act of compassion by making prayerful intercession on behalf of all in this world who are in need of God’s love and care. From the greater assembly, ministers are called forth to give service and leadership to those who gather to worship in Christ’s name.

GREETERS & USHERS

This ministry is open to persons of all ages. The role includes arriving early for Mass to greet worshipers, pass out worship aids, and assist guests with seating and other questions. During Mass, some of these ministers assist in collecting the financial contributions for the maintenance of the parish. After Mass, greeters and ushers help to distribute the parish bulletin and gather up any remaining worship aids from the pews. This is an excellent ministry for families with young children to do as a group. For more information about joining this ministry, please contact Moya McGinn Mathews.

 

ACOLYTES

The role of acolyte is open to youth grade 5 and older, and to adults. The acolyte assists the presider and other ministers in maintaining a smooth flow of the liturgical ritual. Training is provided. For more information about joining this ministry, please contact Moya McGinn Mathews.

LECTOR

The lector’s job is to proclaim the Word of God in the liturgical assembly. The role is open to persons of any age who can proclaim God’s Word with understanding, conviction, and clarity. Training is provided and regular rehearsal is required, by arrangement with the Director of Liturgy and Music, Moya McGinn Mathews.

 

Eucharistic Ministers

Ministers of the Eucharist distribute the Body and Blood of Christ to all who come forward for communion. All confirmed Catholics who believe in and show reverence for the Eucharist are eligible for this ministry.  Training for this ministry is provided. For more information about joining this ministry, please contact Moya McGinn Mathews.

 

LITURGICAL ART AND ENVIRONMENT

Before our assembly gathers for worship, our ministers of liturgical art and environment prepare the space for liturgical celebration. The work is seasonal, and is open to any who are willing to work. Artists, seamstresses, and strong, able bodies are especially encouraged to participate in this ministry.
