Liturgical Ministry at the Shrine offers lay persons the opportunity to serve God and the Church by participating in liturgies as musicians, lectors and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. Anyone age 18 or older is invited to serve as a Lector or Extraordinary Minister for Shrine liturgies. Training is provided. During Masses, Lectors proclaim the Word of God; Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion distribute the Body and Blood of Christ to other members of the congregation.
The Shrine’s music ministry includes cantors, instrumentalists and a volunteer choir, performing both traditional and contemporary hymns for weekend Masses and other Shrine liturgies. Anyone high school age or older and able to read music is invited to join the Shrine’s music ministry, using God-given gifts to praise Him in a special way.
