All youth of the parish who are in the 4th grade or higher are welcome to have an active role in the Eucharistic Celebration as an altar server. Four servers are required at each weekend mass. The cross bearer, who leads the procession into the assembly for worship; the book bearer, who holds the Sacramentary or book of prayers; two acolytes, both assist the priest in the preparation of the gifts of bread and wine. At special celebrations, servers may be required to carry the incense or holy water. Those interested should contact Sr. Anne Marie at 978-422-8881.
Couple to Couple
Married couples work with engaged couples preparing them for marriage. This ministry includes one-on-one meetings between the engaged couple and the mentoring couple who have received special training and have a strong commitment to marriage. Couples interested in becoming a mentoring couple should contact Fr. Steuterman at 978-422-8881.
Eucharistic Ministry is very special. It is a way of serving our community and experiencing in a special way the Lord’s Presence in our midst. Being a Eucharistic Minister is a privilege not simply a job to be done in the name of efficiency. This ministry celebrates the glory of Christ himself, transforming the simple act of sharing bread and wine into a Pascal Feast. Those interested should contact Sr. Anne Marie at 978-422-8881.

The Music Ministry is a growing vital part of the community liturgical process. Through their participation in music, ministers desire to “inspire the community to: participate in celebration, deepen prayer, meet God, and go forth to serve God’s people.” There are no age limits: the young participate in the Children’s Choir. We are always looking for new singers to fill our choirs and instrumentalists of all kinds are welcomed. Consider joining the choir. No matter what your level of expertise in music – if you have the interest and desire, there is a place for you in singing God’s praises and leading our fellow community members in sung prayer. Stop by the choir after Mass to speak with either Michele Wrightson, Kathy Majikas or Judy Allardice.
