Parish Worship Ministries
The Liturgical Ministry Instructions can be found here.
This group of young men and women assist our parish priests in the celebration of the Eucharist. The youth of our parish have much to offer the parish community, and in this service they have the opportunity to learn and grow in involvement in our parish worship. Boys and girls in seventh though twelfth grade may be altar servers.
ALTAR SOCIETY at St. Joseph:
Rachelle Oubre 869-4103
The Altar Society takes care of the linens, cleaning of the sanctuary, and is responsible for the purchase and maintenance of supplies needed for worship.
Throughout the year the parish community is graced by the talents and commitments of its choir members. Their devotion to music as a means of enhancing the liturgy is a gift to the entire parish and its friends. In addition to assisting with the Sunday liturgies, members of the choirs often join with others to sing for funerals.

EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF THE EUCHARIST
These ministers assist in the distribution of the Eucharist on Sunday and weekdays. Some also assist in bringing Holy Communion to the Homebound and to the Hospital (which is listed under the Spiritual Life & Worship). Some also serve on Sunday as greeters. Their expression of a warm welcome is a statement to visitors of the warmth and generosity of our parish community.
In proclaiming the Word of God at the Sunday and weekday liturgies, lectors serve to bring God’s message to our ears and to our hearts that we may serve Him more fully in our daily lives.
The sacristans prepare the altar and sanctuary for the celebration of the Eucharist. This ministry is responsible for the care of the sacred vessels and vestments, setting out linens, replacement of candles, etc. Their service prepares the setting for a beautiful and smooth liturgy.
These men and women welcome, assist in seating, and help in taking up the collection at Mass. They also assist the parishioners in presenting the gifts.
