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 and, if married, in a sacramental marriage 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.
