“The Liturgy is the Summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed, at the same time, it is the Fount from which all the Church’s power flows."

Liturgical Ministries Schedule

The celebration of the Eucharist, or the Mass, as an action of Christ and the people of God, is the center of Christian life. Parish life at St. Aloysius is centered around the daily celebration of the Eucharist, several Sunday Masses, and the liturgies and feasts of the church year.  The Bishop, Priests, Deacons, lay ministers and the whole liturgical assembly each have an important and unique role to play in these liturgical celebrations.  St. Aloysius has several worship ministries in which lay ministers are invited to serve:

  • Sacristans 

  • Mass Coordinators 

  • Funeral Mass Coordinators 

  • Wedding Liturgy Coordinators 

  • Ministers of Hospitality/Ushers 

  • Readers 

  • Altar Servers 

  • Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion 

  • Art and Environment Committee 

One of God’s greatest gifts to creation is the gift of music.  Just as Jesus and the Apostles sang hymns and psalms during the Last Supper, so does the liturgical assembly sing during the celebration of the Eucharist.  St. Aloysius offers several music ministries which encourage and support the singing of the assembly in worship: 

  • A Children’s Choir (ages 8-14) 

  • A Handbell Choir, the Festival Ringers 

  • A choir for 9:00 Sunday Mass, the Chorale 

  • A choir for 11:00 Sunday Mass, The Renewal Singers 

  • An ensemble leading “Contemporary Christian” style music for 5:30 Sunday Mass  

  • Cantors and Song Leaders 

  • Organists, pianists, and other instrumentalists
