Liturgical Ministries

Liturgical Ministries

The essential element for participation in a ministry is a desire to serve others and to participate more deeply and more fully in the life and mission of the Church. If you would like to become involved with one or more of the following ministries, please call the Parish office to leave your name and the appropriate coordinator will contact you.

Adult Altar Server

Adult servers assist the Priest at daily and weekend masses and at funerals. Training is provided.

Youth Altar Server

Youth altar servers also assist the Priest at weekend masses. Youth altar servers must be a minimum of 10 years old and must have received the Sacrament of Eucharist??????? Training is provided. This is a great way for youth to be introduced to volunteering.


A lector (or reader) is the person who proclaims the first or second reading at Mass and often leads the Prayers of the Faithful at Mass. At St. Samuel’s there are two lectors at each weekend Mass and one lector at daily Mass. A person must have received the Sacrament of Confirmation to be a lector, therefore young adults and adults are welcome to become a lector.
