Campus Ministry offers a variety of worship experiences, including Sunday and daily Masses, seasonal services, and the Sacrament of Penance (Confession). Join us and let the spirit and power of the liturgy be one of your teachers. As liturgical ministers, students are called to help the community celebrate.

Liturgical Ministry Scheduling
Liturgical Ministry Scheduling
As we look ahead to the remaining weeks of the semester, you are invited to indicate your ministry preferences and availability for both our Weekend and Weekday Masses below.
For Saturday and Sunday Masses, please use this online form to indicate which ministry(ies) you wish to fulfill and your availability on the weekends in November and December through Christmas. Once we have your responses, we will build a ministry schedule for the weekend liturgies. Please respond by Wednesday, November 6, so that we can prepare a roster by November 8 for the remaining weeks of the semester.
For the 7:00 AM and 12:10 PM Masses in the Chapel, we have developed this shared spreadsheet that outlines the ministry opportunities for each liturgy in a given month. To sign up as a Server, Lector, or EMHC for a given Mass, simply add your name in the appropriate cell in the table. A sheet for the month of December will be available by mid-November.
A weekly email reminder will be distributed to the ministers on deck for a given week outlining their responsibilities for upcoming liturgies.
Opportunities to Serve Include:
Altar Servers assist the priest celebrant at Mass in a variety of ways, which includes holding the ritual books, setting the altar, and carrying incense, cross, or candles. Through careful training, altar servers serve in a reverent manner and act as a witness to full, conscious, and active participation in the liturgy.
Hospitality Ministers welcome the community as it gathers for worship. Hospitality ministers help each person to feel welcome as they enter the chapel, distribute worship aids, help people find a seat, and assist with the offering. The Christian tradition reminds us that hospitality is of paramount importance because by doing so some have entertained angels unaware. (Hebrews 13:2)
Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC) undertake the important ministry of distributing Holy Communion at mass. The Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist unites us both to God and to one another. EMHCs are trained to share the Body and Blood of Christ with the congregation with reverence and joy.
Through voice, eye contact and personal presence lectors proclaim the Word of God to the assembly. For clear and prayerful proclamation of the Scriptures at Mass, lectors prepare the week before they are to minister by reading the scripture passage, reflecting on its meaning, and proclaiming the passage aloud.
Liturgical Assistant positions are work-study positions. Liturgical assistants work with the liturgical staff to prepare for and facilitate campus liturgies.
