One of the most wonderful ways to be involved in CCM is to serve at Mass as a lector, usher, or altar server. Serving in one of these positions enhances your experience of the Mass at the chapel and enables our community to join together in the beautiful prayer of the liturgy. It is also a very rewarding experience. Below are descriptions of each of the ways you could get involved. If you are interested in any of these, please contact John More.
|Altar servers assist the priest throughout the Mass, making sure everything is in the proper place and preparing the altar for the sacrifice of the Eucharist. Servers may also assist at other liturgies, such as Eucharistic adoration. By their service at the altar of the Lord they fill an essential role in making the liturgy possible.||
|Lectors proclaim the Word of God in the Old and New Testament readings during Mass.By reading these and the intentions, they assist the community to hear God’s voice and pray together for those in need.|
|Ushers help to create a welcoming environment at Mass by greeting people as they arrive and distributing bulletins as they leave. They also help with the collection, enabling the liturgy to run smoothly.||
