Altar Server Application Form
A "Day of Recollection" and Diocesan workshops are required for all liturgical ministers. (with the exception of the altar servers)
Liturgical ministers will take a yearlong sabbatical when they have served in the ministry for several years. Sabbaticals begin in Advent lasting through the beginning of the Advent the next year.
These positions need pastoral approval. They are a privilege, not a right. All ministers are responsible for adherence to the guidelines of the Church and attendance as shown on the provided schedules.
If you feel the Lord calling you to become a liturgical minister, please make an appointment with the Director of Liturgical Ministers. This individual will provide a confidential interview to discern your calling.
Visits to the Sick: Although this is strictly speaking not a part of the liturgy, this is a ministry that flows out of it. Ministers are sent out into the community to shut-ins bringing them the Eucharist. St. Peter's also provides a Sunday Liturgy to a local convalescent center that is done by Liturgical ministers of the Word and the Eucharist. Contact the Director of Liturgical Ministers for training.
