Liturgical Ministries

Every Mass is a celebration. The Assembly is present; there’s a joyful energy as each person is greeted and finds a seat.  A full use of liturgical ministers, including servers (who can be adults, as well as children), well-prepared readers, possibly several of them, greeters, Eucharistic Ministers,  You can picture it! Having a number of people involved in the action of the liturgy makes a difference that you can feel.  We welcome your participation.  We need your participation.  God needs you.

“The liturgy, then, is about the action of God’s own people, each with different offices and roles … one of service, not of privilege, a mirror of Christ who washed the feet of his disciples and instructed his followers to imitate his example of service,” from the USCCB .

About Parish Ministries

St. Ignatius of Loyola tells us that Jesus’ desire is that we join Him in making God’s dream for the world present in our decisions and actions. In this way, we are living the gifts of the Eucharist as the visible presence of God’s love in our world. Here at Our Lady of Hope we trust that God has provided – in us – the people, talents, and resources needed to make God’s dream real.

We nourish each other as Jesus wished. Through our more than two dozen ministries we work to alleviate spiritual and physical hunger, reduce the isolation of people who are lonely or excluded, and we care for our common home – the environment, in the wider world and in our hearts.

Naturally, there’s more we could do. Ignatius called it “the magis”: doing the very best quality work that we can for the greater service of God and universal good. Your commitment and participation brings these ministries to life in the spirit of the magis.
