This liturgical ministry is responsible for distributing the Body and Blood of Christ at the weekend Masses and other times Mass is celebrated.  The Parish is always in need of parishioners who can assist with the Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist.

Interested parishioners need to be over the age of 18 years before they can become an Extraordinary Minister of Communion.  They will also be required to undergo training which the Archdiocese offers every six months at Liverpool Parish.

Floristry Ministryflower arrangement3

We have a wonderful group of ladies who are very talented with floral arrangements.

They take turns on a rostered basis to showcase their talents with the wonderful floral arrangements each weekend.

 


Linen Ministrychurch linen4

These ministers clean and press the altar linens and purificators used each week in our liturgies.  This is another invisible, yet essential ministry.  The cloths used at the altar in the Eucharistic celebration are to be treated with the care and respect due to those items being used in the preparation and celebration of the sacred mysteries.

Accordingly, guidelines are provided for their cleaning.  This ministry is time-flexible and is performed at home.


Ministers of the Word (Lectors) and CommentatorsLector5

Lectors proclaim the Word of the Lord during the Liturgy.  A lector should have a passion for Scripture, an ability to interpret and understand Scripture.

Interested parishioners need to be a confident reader and have sufficient public speaking skills as you are proclaiming the Word of God.  

We are always looking for new readers and commentators to read at our four weekend Masses.  For more information, please check out the guidelines of what is expected from our lectors and commentators located within the Administration page of this website. 

If you would like to become a Lector or a Commentator, please contact the parish office.
