Liturgical Ministry

Ministry at our parish Liturgies is a great way to go deeper in your faith. If you are interested in getting involved, contact Jeff Van Dalen, our Parish Director, at jvandalen@stmatthias-milw.org.

Altar Servers
This ministry provides members of the parish with a true opportunity to function as lay ministers by reverently assisting the celebrant and/or deacon during Sunday mass and at special liturgies throughout the year. Altar servers are normally trained in grades 5-12. Contact Tom Gallagher with questions: tgallagher@stmatthias-milw.org.

Lectors
Lectors proclaim the Word of God clearly and understandably so that all who hear may respond.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
These lay people are sometimes referred to as Eucharistic Ministers. Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion serve by bringing communion to parishioners who reside in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or in their own homes and unable to get to church. They also may assist the priest in distributing the Eucharist at mass.

Ushers
These ministers are sometimes referred to as Greeters. Being a welcoming community is very important to us. Ushers are the first face of the parish. They greet those coming into our church, offer assistance to those in need, distribute parish bulletins, take up the collection, and distribute other materials as needed.
