WORSHIP SUPPORT

 

At St. Benedict's there are many roles for individuals of all ages that enable them to actively participate in worship. They include:

Acolytes are youth in 3rd-12th grades who participate in the liturgy and assist the clergy with various worship duties. At each service two acolytes are needed as torch bearers, two are needed as banner bearers, one for sanctus bells, and one Cross bearer (crucifer).  Contact Ashley.

Eucharistic Ministers are individuals who are confirmed in the Episcopal Church and licensed by the Bishop to present the wine chalice to the congregants during Eucharist.  Contact Pat McCabe

Lectors are lay persons assigned to read the selected scripture passage during the worship service. This person also leads the congregational reading of the psalm and introduces the Gospel procession. Contact Pat McCabe

Intercessors are lay persons who rise from the congregation to present the prayers of the people. Contact Pat McCabe

 

Ushers have the responsibility to assist individuals during worship services.  Duties can include handing out service bulletins, managing the flow of traffic, seating latecomers, and collecting alms.  Youth and adults are welcome to become ushers. Contact: Sean McNabb

 

Sound Ministry volunteers get the best seat in the house as they manage the microphones, speakers, and sound recordings during worship.  Training is provided and you have duty about once every 4-6 weeks.  Contact: Ashley

 

Altar Guild is a special ministry that cares for everything that relates to the altar.  They prepare the set-up of the altar for all services, including preparation and care of linens and silver.  Contact:  Peggy Kessler or Saralee Parker

 

Flower Guild helps to beautify our worship space with floral arrangements, always giving consideration to the seasons of the church and the types of services.  Contact:  Wallis Smith
