Ministers of the Word

Lectors and Commentators are Ministers of the Word who endeavor to announce and proclaim to the gathered assembly the welcome announcements and God’s Sacred Word with a faith steeped in prayerful reading of Scripture. Ministers of the Word also seek to be of service in the faith community and participate in continuing education.

Ushers

The Usher’s ministry mainly concerns itself with the orderly flow of the Eucharistic celebration by helping with seating, collecting the offering, passing out bulletins, and tidying up the church for the next Mass.

Worship Space and Decor

Our Worship space in church is a place of sacred encounter with God and is expressive of our Holy Cross community as we gather to pray together, to hear the Word of God, to receive the Sacraments, and to celebrate the Eucharist.

The work of decor and care of our Worship space is a blending of service by the Ladies Altar Sodality and dedicated individuals. We welcome anyone with a love for the celebration of the Eucharist.
