Art & Environment Committee decorates the church for each liturgical season and special feast days.

LITURGICAL MINISTRIES

Lectors read the Scriptures and prayer intentions at each Mass.
Ushers seat people, collect the Mass offerings, choose someone to take up the Offertory gifts, and distribute bulletins.
Greeters meet people at the church doors and hand out hymnals.
Servers are boys and girls, 5th grade and up, or adults, who assist the priest at Mass.
Eucharistic Ministers help in the distribution of Communion.
Eucharistic Minister Coordinators determine if there are adequate numbers of Eucharistic Ministers for each Mass, and call for volunteers as needed. They also bring the Blessed Sacrament from the chapel to the altar.
Set up ministers clean the chalices and trays to prepare for the next Mass.
Avalon Square is a nearby retirement community for which we provide liturgical support.  On Sundays after the 8am Mass, a Eucharistic Minister leads a prayer service and distributes communion to those residents unable to attend Mass elsewhere.
Communion Ministers at Waukesha Memorial Hospital:  Each day the four parishes of Waukesha take turns bringing Communion to Catholic patients at WMH.
