Below is a list of the liturgical ministries that you can be a part of at Epiphany.

Altar Servers 

Altar servers assist the priest during the Mass. Fifth grade boys or boys over ten years of age may apply for this ministry. Teens must have a code of conduct and two reference letters. Adults are needed to help with training and other events connected with this ministry. Adult servers are required to have on file, a background check, VIRTUS training and a code of conduct.

Sunday School Catechists

During the first half of the 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. Masses, the preschoolers gather to experience God’s Word.  Each week we begin with music and the Gospel lesson. The children then break into small groups with trained catechists for a hands-on approach of the lesson. Children join their families in the church for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.  (After the homily parents pick up their children in the foyer and bring them into the Mass.)

Environment Committee

Our mission is to create a welcoming environment that announces the Liturgical season and draws the community into the celebration of the Liturgy. As a committee we are responsible for decorating the church, sanctuary and gathering space throughout the liturgical year. Members are needed to plan, set-up and maintain the environment throughout the year. Time commitment can range from thirty minutes to eight hours per month.

Lectors

Lectors proclaim the Word of God and the Prayer of the Faithful during all weekend and Holy Day Masses. We are assigned on a five-week rotation. We proclaim at different Mass times within our schedule, as part of a two person team. Ongoing training and support is provided during monthly Lector workshops. The workshops are used to help us grow in the spirituality and rituals of our calling.

Sacristan

The Office of Sacristan is a ministry of the Church by which a sacristan uses his/her time and talent to serve the priest before and after one of the daily or weekend Masses. The sacristan performs all preparations for the Mass by working with the altar servers, lectors, ushers, extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist and by performing the duties within the sacristy. The sacristan should arrive one half hour before Mass and plan to stay a short time after Mass. The age requirement for a sacristan is 16 years old and confirmed. Training is provided and the rotation is once a week.

Ushers

Ushers are greeters of hospitality who meet and greet people as they enter the church for Mass or worship. The ushers also gather the Sunday offerings collections and hand out parish bulletins. Ushers are required to wear proper attire. Participants must be confirmed, and training is provided.

Vigil Light Cleaners 

They are responsible for cleaning the inside of the vigil lights and putting in new candles in the church and chapel. Training is provided. The time commitment is approximately twenty minutes, one to two times a month.

Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers of Holy Communion

You would assist the priest at Masses by helping distribute the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.  This most important and rewarding ministry is open to any Catholic over the age of 16 who is registered as a parishioner of the Church of the Epiphany and who has received the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist, and who participates regularly in the liturgical and sacramental life of the Church.  If married, the marriage must be one recognized by the Church.  Extraordinary ministers are asked to serve at least once a month.  The privilege of serving as an extraordinary minister of Holy Communion is very important to the Eucharistic life of the Church.

If you’d like to serve God and become an active member of this crucial ministry, please contact John Haley at 763.767.7404 or johnnypar1213@gmail.com.

Training is scheduled at your convenience and takes approximately one hour.  Review the training guide with current updated as of August 25, 2015.  Click here for a diagram of positions in the sanctuary.
