Liturgical Ministries

Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion

This is a lay person that serves the Church by assisting the clergy in distributing the Holy Eucharist (the Body & Blood of Jesus Christ) to the believers. They must undergo training to prepare them for what they will need to do. Communion distributors may also visit the sick and shut-in members of the parish to bring them Holy Communion.

Any teenager or adult who feels they have the call to be a eucharistic minister at Queen of Peace is invited and encouraged to participate in this ministry. Contact The Parish Office at 863-4344 or at parishoffice@qpchurch.org for further details.

Lectors

The ministry of lector is an extremely important one for the Church. Proclaiming the Word of God at Mass is more than simply reading out loud into a microphone. Mother Church teaches us that Christ is truly present in the proclamation of the Word. Therefore, the lector is charged with proclaiming the Sacred Scriptures in a way that makes it intelligible and spiritual to his or her brothers and sisters in the congregation.

Lectors should be men and women who have a gift for public speaking, who can deliver the message with clarity and confidence, and who have a deep respect for the Word of God. They should practice their assigned readings and meditate upon them before their assigned Mass. Lectors may feel free to take a Missalette home with them for this purpose.

Ideally, the lector will arrive at church at least 15 minutes before Mass starts so the presider knows he or she is there.

Any teenager or adult who feels they have the call to be a lector at Queen of Peace is invited and encouraged to participate in this ministry. Contact the parish office at 863-4344 or the Parish Office at parishoffice@qpchurh.org for further details.
