MINISTRY SCHEDULE

Holy Day Ministry Schedule

Thank you to all who have informed us of your preferred Holy Day Masses, especially to our Altar Servers! Unfortunately, it was very difficult to work thru the Holy Day Mass sign-up sheets this year and we have tried to schedule as best as we could. We plan to change the process to make it less confusing.

The Mass times on Christmas Eve have changed as listed below:

4 PM Children       6:30 PM SPANISH         8:30 PM English          11 PM Mass of the Night

PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPAM/JUNK MAIL FOLDERS! My emails to all may be redirected to your junk mail or spam folder or blocked on your email.

 

Holy Day Liturgies – Changes with the Sign-Ups

In late January, we will email the Mass schedule for the special liturgies in March and April. Instead of a sign-up sheet, you will be asked to provide your first and second choice(s) of your preferred Mass(es). Any dates you are not available to serve must be included to avoid being scheduled for a different Mass if your first/second choice is not available. We appreciate your understanding that we will accommodate as best as we can. Any positions without volunteers will be filled randomly by the program with any of the ministers still available to serve.

 

 General Reminders:

  • Contact listing to arrange for substitutes is not available online – see latest email/mailing.
  • Notify office of preference changes or if no longer able to serve.
  • If you are scheduled every week but wish to limit the number of assignments, notify office to adjust preferences.
  • Arrive no later than 20 minutes prior to start of Mass and check in with sacristan.
  • Notify office of any dates (start & end) when not available to serve before Wednesday, February 12, for the next ministry schedule. Late submissions will not be considered.
  • NEW MINISTERS, please read our Scheduling Information Sheet.

The smooth flow of the Liturgy and the people’s ability to pray truly hinges on your service!

 

Dress Code Reminder:

Those of us who have a special place in the leading of our parish worship, also have a special duty to see that our personal dress and conduct enhance, not hinder, our public parish worship of God.  In other words, by exercising common courtesy and simple good taste, we can set a fine example for the entire congregation.  God will be truly worshipped and His people made one united community.

The smooth flow of the Liturgy and the people’s ability to pray truly hinges on your service!
