The Mass is the primary place of intimate encounter with the Risen Jesus here at St. John’s. Why does the Church ask those who make up the Body of Christ to gather at least once a week to receive his living Presence in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass? Because “without me, you can do nothing” (Jn 15:5). This is the humble recognition of those who seek to love the Father by “keeping Holy the Sabbath” every Sunday.

You may volunteer to be an altar server if you are in fifth grade or above. Training for altar servers is held on an as-needed basis, usually once a year, and consists of four sessions lasting 1.5 hours each. Once trained, servers commit to assisting at one mass per month, at a minimum.
All servers are to be at Mass 15 minutes before the scheduled start.
New servers are asked to introduce themselves to the priest and the other servers.
Please have servers dress appropriately (no flip flops)
If your child cannot serve as scheduled, it is your responsibility to find a replacement prior to Mass. If you are replacing an experienced server, please find another experienced server so that the new servers can get "on the job" training and guidance from the older servers.
The Ushers at St. John's welcome parishioners and visitors to Mass with a warm smile and a greeting. Ushers are also responsible for collecting the offering, distributing the parish bulletin, and ensuring that the pews are tidied up after Masses.
We need help at all Masses, so if you would like to share your time and talent by participating in this ministry at St. John's, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lectors at St. John's read at the Sunday Vigil and Sunday masses. The schedule for lectors is developed twice a year. Once the schedule is developed, if you cannot act as lector at your assigned mass, it is your responsibility to find a replacement. If you wish to serve as a lector, please contact Peg Daly at email@example.com
The current lector schedule is available here.
Notes on lector procedures and other information for lectors is available here.
