Altar Servers

Altar servers assist the priest in the celebration of the Mass. This is done through specific actions and by setting an example by active participation in the liturgy.

Collectors

Offertory Collectors assist in gathering parishioners' contributions during the weekend Masses.

Eucharistic Adoration

Adoration is held every Friday from 1-4 p.m. at St. Bridget Church.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

“Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion” are lay people who distribute the Eucharist during Mass and to our homebound parishioners.

Greeters

Greeters have a ministry of hospitality by welcoming parishioners at the doors of the Church at the weekend Masses.

Lectors

Lectors proclaim the Word of God at weekend and weekday liturgies. By skillful use of a well-modulated voice and clear diction, the lector interprets the living word of God for the gathered faith community, capturing their attention so that they may listen with the ears of their hearts and respond in faith to what they have heard.

Music Ministry

Church musicians are called to draw others to Christ through the beauty of music. The Church has amassed a treasury of sacred music over the centuries, and the St. Bridget of Sweden Parish Music Ministry utilizes both new and old music from this treasury each and every week. Since every Mass participates in the eternal, heavenly liturgy, we strive to provide liturgical music that is worthy of this great calling.

Parish Decorating Committee

Decorations are intended to draw people to the true nature of the mystery being celebrated.  As we come together as a family of faith we strive to celebrate the beauty that surrounds us in everyday life.  Natural flowers, plants, wreaths and fabric hangings, and other seasonal objects are used to enhance the primary liturgical points of focus.

While seasonal decorations are maintained throughout the entire liturgical season, the ornamentation of a church should contribute toward its noble simplicity.  The intention is to foster the instruction of the faithful and the dignity of the entire sacred place.  The use of living flowers and plants serves as a reminder of the gift of life God has given to the human community.
