Mass is at the center of all that we are and all that we do at the Newman Catholic Center. Members of our community are given many opportunities to serve in a number of capacities. Training is provided at the beginning of each semester, and as needed, in the following areas:
EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF THE EUCHARIST
Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers help to distribute the Body and Blood of Christ at Mass. Training is held at the start of each semester.
Those serving in this ministry are called to proclaim the Word of God and the Prayers of the Faithful at Sunday Masses. The mission of those called to this ministry is to help members of the parish enter into the power of the Word of God.
Ushers warmly welcome worshipers at the Sunday Masses. They pass out worship aids and bulletins before Mass, collect the offering, and assist worshipers as needed.
Support priests and other ministers by setting up all items required for Mass. They are responsible for returning all items to proper storage facilities following Mass. The Sacristan’s ministry is to help the priest and community enter into prayer before and during Mass.
Servers assist at the altar at the Masses in accordance with the norms of the Church. In a very particular way they place themselves at the service of the priest during the liturgy.
Music greatly enhances the worship services and faith of our students. If you would like to share your musical gifts as a singer or instrumentalist with the Newman community please join us in this ministry!
If you would like to get involved in any of these ministries, whether it’s one or all of them, please contact us! Thank you for being willing to serve the community!
