Liturgical Ministries

The following liturgical ministries at Lyke House are open for student participation:

Lectoring at Lyke House

Lector – Proclaiming the Word of God during Mass

The Lector ministry involves serving God and His people by proclaiming the most important words we speak…The Word of God.

Eucharistic Minister – Distributing the Body and Blood of Christ during Mass

The Eucharistic Ministry involves serving God and His people by insuring the brevity of the Communion Rite of the Eucharistic celebration in relation to other parts of the service.

Fr. Mark and two Acolytes

Altar Server– Assisting the celebrant (priest) during Mass

The acolyte ministry involves serving God and His people at mass by assisting the priest and congregation in praising God as well as they can.

Hospitality Ministers – Welcoming and attending to the needs of guests during Mass

While this may seem like a minor ministry, members of this group are the first people someone sees at mass. They help set the mood for all visitors to feel welcome and wanted. Smiling ministers wanted.
