"As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace."
-1 Peter 4:10
By reason of our baptism, we are called to participate in the ministries of the liturgy, offering service to the Christian community. Some ministries are very visible to the community; others are more behind the scenes. Every ministry is important. Training is provided for each ministry and taking into account the person’s availability and Mass preference a schedule is prepared. How is God calling you to serve?

Liturgical Ministry Dress Guidelines
When ministering to others, Liturgical Ministers are the face of Christ for the assembly. The image we project reflects not only the dignity of the ministerial role, but our own personal dignity as well.
