Liturgical Ministries at St. Ladislas

Serve the Lord with gladness! Come before Him with joyful song.

— Psalm 100:2

Altar Servers

This traditional liturgical ministry is open to all parishioners of at least 5th grade age. Their main function is to assist the priest at the celebration of Mass. Altar Servers are needed for both weekday and weekend Masses and funerals.

Broadcast Team

The Broadcast Team assists with the live stream of Mass and other church activities for those unable to attend in person. No experience needed, just a desire to serve.

Cross Bearers

This is a service opportunity whose main function is to carry the large 17 lb. processional cross at the beginning and conclusion of weekend Masses.


This ministry plans, orders, and arranges flowers in the sanctuary. Wedding arrangements are prepared when requested. Assistant florists are also needed.


Lectors proclaim the readings, make pre-Mass announcements, and recite the Prayers of the Faithful as needed.

Liturgical Musicians

Helps the assembly worship through prayer and song. Several opportunities are available, including cantor, choirs, music planners, accompanists, and instrumentalists.

Prayers of the Faithful Committee

Members prepare the Prayers of the Faithful. They work in teams of two (or individually) and write the weekend and Holy Day Prayers of the Faithful for a one-month period, twice a year. 

Art & Environment Committee

This committee enhances our worship space and experience by use of color and form and layout. It works closely with the Liturgy Commission and the Florists. They are especially looking for those parishioners who are gifted in arts and crafts and design, but all are welcome.

Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)

Volunteers lead children ages 4-9 through a liturgical experience at the Sunday 11 a.m. Mass. Children are led through prayers and readings that are adapted to their level of understanding. Other volunteers (older children or adults) needed as well!

Eucharistic Ministers

The purpose of this ministry is to distribute Communion at Mass. Distribution of the Eucharist at selected nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and to those homebound is also a function of this ministry.

Greeters & Ushers

Greeters and Ushers welcome those who gather for the liturgy, monitor the Communion procession, collect the offertory, and distribute programs and bulletins.

Liturgy Commission

The Liturgy Commission supports the liturgical life of the St. Ladislas faith community by fostering the "full, conscious and active participation of the assembly." (The Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy Vatican Council II)

Mass Linens Volunteers

Volunteers wash and prepare Mass linens at home.


Sacristans gather the necessary vessels and linens prior to Mass. Afterward, they clean and store the above items in the sacristy.
