Liturgical Ministries

Liturgical ministers assist with the functions of Masses and other liturgies. If you are interested in serving as a liturgical minister, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page and you will be contacted by a ministry coordinator.

Altar Linens: This dedicated group of volunteers properly cleans and irons the various linens used at Mass.


Altar Servers: Altar servers exercise an important role in helping the priest to lead God’s people in prayer. The care and attention that altar servers give their ministry allows the Mass to take place with reverence and beauty. Altar server training begins in fifth grade, and servers are then scheduled in the parish ministry schedule. Servers assist the priest with weekly Masses as well as weddings, funerals, and specially designated prayer celebrations. Our servers perform their roles with commitment and respect.


Arts and Environment: Members of this ministry plan for, prepare and decorate the inside of the church for various Liturgical Seasons and Holy Days.


Eucharistic Ministers: Eucharistic Ministers assist the priest in the distribution of the Body and Blood of Christ to the congregation during the Sunday and Holy Day Masses and distribute the Body of Christ at weekday Communion Services when a priest is not available.


Greeters: Greeters welcome all who enter the doors of Queen of the Holy Rosary Church for Mass and other special occasions. 


Hospital Ministry: Trained Eucharistic Ministers bring Communion to Catholics in the hospital, retirement and nursing homes, and to homebound parishioners.


Lectors: Lectors proclaim the Word of God during liturgies and communal penance services. Lectors lead the assembly in Lenten services. They also read the Responsorial Psalm at any Mass where there is no cantor, read the Prayers of the Faithful, and read the announcements after Mass. 


Music Ministry: This ministry consists of cantors, various choirs, and musicians who lead the singing at Mass with voice and instruments. 


Sacristans: Sacristans manage the many details of setting the altar, unlocking and locking the church, and turning on lights and microphones. 


Ushers: Ushers help with seating at Mass, take up the collection and secure it after Mass, provide assistance to those with special needs, and pass out bulletins after Mass.
