Please use this guide to help you choose the Ministries/Groups that utilize your own gifts, strengths and convictions. This Guide is divided into two sections: Section 1: Section 2: The strengths, gifts and convictions that are listed in the Ministry Discernment Tool. A description of each ministry/group.

Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. ~1 Corinthians 12:4-7

They serve the community, (light the altar candles, hold the Missal, place vessels on the altar, etc.) Their prayerful presence adds reverence and dignity to each celebration of the Mass through their actions, prayers and songs. This ministry is open to boys and girls in the 4 th grade and older. Training is provided. GIFTS: Celebration, Supporting LITURGICAL ENVIRONMENT MINISTRY This ministry works to create an atmosphere of beauty that supports prayerful worship. Their work helps to make clear the differences in the Liturgical seasons Work sessions are scheduled, as needed, throughout the year, primarily for the seasons of Advent- Christmas-Epiphany and Lent-Easter-Pentecost. If you have an eye for design, are handy with a needle and thread, or just have some free time to work for our Lord, then come and join us. Sometimes heavy lifting help is needed.

Training sessions are provided several times throughout the year. GIFTS: Assistance, Faith-Sharing GREETER MINISTRY Do you have a friendly and welcoming personality? Do you like to talk to people? If you answered yes to either of those questions, our new Greeter Ministry would be perfect for you. A church greeter is one of the most important jobs in the church. You are the first and last person that people see when they are visiting. GIFTS: Assistance, Celebration, Organizing, Welcoming/Hospitality MARTHA & MARY ALTAR LINEN MINISTRY This ministry ensures that all cloths and linens used at Mass and liturgical ceremonies are properly laundered.

The name Jubilate (pronounced yoo-bee-lah-teh); from the Latin "to make a joyful noise to the Lord," identifies us in our mission: to give musical praise to God. We explore the rich tradition of Catholic music and even music from other traditions as we develop a strong musical foundation. We have a lot of fun as we learn about music, team building, and the role of music in worship. GIFTS: Celebration, Communicating, Faith Sharing YOUTH & YOUNG ADULT CHOIR (WTL Way, Truth, Life) WTL is the regular ensemble at the 5:00 pm Sunday liturgy.

The music is contemporary in style and uses a variety of instrumentation. Membership is open to all those who seek to serve musically in diverse styles, and who seek to have fun serving Christ and His Church. We are always in need of those who play instruments and anyone who loves to sing. GIFTS: Celebration, Communicating, Faith Sharing 5

6 FAITH FORMATION BIBLE STUDY LEADER The Sacred Scriptures contain the Word of God and, because they are inspired, they are truly the word of God. (DV 24) The Church accepts and venerates, as inspired, the 46 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament (CCC 138). The four Gospels occupy a central place because Christ Jesus is their center (CCC 139). We are called to read, study, and reflect upon the Scriptures so that they become God s living word in our daily lives. We offer various Bible studies throughout the year, watch the bulletin for more information.
