We welcome our parishioners to choose from many available options to share their talents in the liturgical ministries of the Basilica Parish:
- Eucharistic Ministers / Homebound Ministry ~ Lay men and women who assist with the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass or bring the Eucharist to the sick and infirmed in private homes, hospitals, and long-term care facilities. Special training, education, and on-going formation are provided.
- Lectors ~ Lay men and women who proclaim the Word of God at all liturgies. Candidates must have the ability to read in a public setting. A short briefing along with proper protocol will be provided.
Altar Servers ~ Parents are asked to encourage their children to participate as Altar Servers. Training and guidance will be provided on an ongoing basis to make them as comfortable as possible in a public setting. Open to both boys and girls after they have received their First Holy Communion.
Greeters / Ushers ~ A team of men and women whose goal is to provide a positive impression while they greet arriving parishioners and visitors, assist in seating, collect the offerings, and distribute bulletins.
