LECTORS
Through this ministry, God’s living Word continues to be proclaimed to His people. Lectors desire to witness to their Christian faith, are concerned that the Word of God is proclaimed well, and are aware that their reading talents should be shared with the whole community. Training involving scriptural background and practical skills, i.e., reading in front of the congregation, is required.

USHERS AND GREETERS
Among the servants of God who comprise the membership of the Body of Christ, ushers and greeters are called to provide a very special service. They create an atmosphere of welcome, community, and order. They welcome all, introduce strangers, distribute worship aids, assist with the collections and occasional special activities, assist in the orderly movement of the faithful as they enter and exit the church, and during Communion, and ensure that the church is left in order after Mass.
