Liturgical Ministries

Altar Servers

Serving at the altar with the priest/s, deacon, lector and Extraordinary ministers of the Holy Communion is an honor and a privilege. Altar servers give up one and a half hours a week to serve God. It is a time of reverence and respect. You serving at the altar in the presence Of God enables the whole worshipping community to be inspired, admired, motivated and hopefully creates a deep desire for others to also serve God. You become a role model for other young members of the church. Being an altar server requires training and then serving on the assigned day.

If you are interested in serving, please contact Mary Tobola, marytobola@att.net.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, sometimes referred to as Eucharistic Ministers, serve by bringing communion to parishioners who reside in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or in their own homes and unable to get to church. They also may assist the priest in distributing the Eucharist at Mass.

For more information, please contact office@stmartinforney.org.

Lectors

Lectors proclaim the Word of God clearly and understandably so that all who hear may respond. For more information, please contact office@stmartinforney.org.

Ushers

Ushers are the first face of the parish. They greet those coming into our church, offer assistance to those in need, distribute parish bulletins, take up the collection, and distribute other materials as needed. For more information, please contact office@stmartinforney.org.
