Ministries

Join a Ministry – there are may ways to help us Praise the Lord.

Altar Guild – members of the Altar Guild work behind the scenes, and quietly serve on a monthly rotation, setting up & cleaning the altar and hardware for all services. They also arrange the floral displays for the Sunday services.  Diane Bonomi and Julie Von Savoye are the directors: 209-533-0450.

Licensed Eucharistic Ministers are laypersons licensed by the Bishop who serve at the altar on Sundays to assist the Vicar prepare the elements for communion, read the Old Testament Lesson and the Psalm, and distribute the cup at Eucharist.   Contact Phil Jones for more information: 209-586-0597; philjones2@att.net.

Licensed Lectors are laypersons licensed by the Bishop to read the New Testament Lesson on Sundays, and who also lead the congregation in the Prayers of the People.  Contact Phil Jones for more information: 209-586-0597; philjones2@att.net.

Pastoral Lay Eucharistic Ministers are laypersons licensed by the Bishop to carry the Eucharist immediately after the Sunday service to those parishioners who have been and desire to continue as regular communicants, but who are prevented by chronic illness or debility from attending the liturgy, e.g., to persons in their own homes or in long term care facilities, and when asked to do so by the Vicar or Bishop.  This ministry does not include visits to persons hospitalized for temporary reasons, as a priest should make those visits.
