Ministries

It is preferable for the liturgical ministers to read the readings of the day before they attend Mass.  You can find the readings at the home page of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Ushers (Ministry of Hospitality)

Ushers are the group of individuals who welcome worshipers to the weekend Masses. They provide a count of the congregation for the parish record, take up the collections, arrange for parishioners to participate in the Eucharistic celebration by selecting worshipers to present the gifts, and give out bulletins, flyers and, any current materials which the parish or diocese may wish to be distributed. 
 
Ushers should make a commitment to attend a particular Mass as much as possible and to let the head usher know in advance if they will not be able to be present on a particular weekend. To become an usher speak to the head usher of the Mass, which you attend, or call the rectory: 718-238-2900.

Catechists

Catechists are volunteer teachers in our School of Religion. They are Catholics who educate the children of our parish in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Classes are on Sundays at 8:30 a.m. from September to June. Catechists must be fully initiated in the church, complete Virtus child safety training and participate in ongoing faith formation. We also have volunteer positions for catechist assistants.
