Holy Family's music ministry team joins musicians of all ages. We currently have a weekly choir (called the Seasonal Choir to reflect the fact that members may join "seasonally' depending on their availability and time in the Northwoods) that sings at a different mass each weekend as well as our Holy Week/Easter Choir and our Christmas Choir. There are opportunities for a wide variety of instrumentalists as well as singers in these choirs. We also have cantors and accompanists. All singers and musicians are encouraged to participate in our music ministries.
Newcomers are always welcome to liturgical ministries! Here is a quick summary of these roles:
Greeters serve to greet every person who attends a weekend liturgy, especially visitors and newcomers.
Ushers Help to direct and seat people. take up the collections, provide guidance and help at communion, and distribute weekly bulletins.
Servers: Students in fifth grade and older volunteer to serve at weekend liturgies and are trained by volunteer trainers, senior servers and parish staff.
Readers and Commentators: These roles require some education and training, but newcomers are always welcome
Eucharistic Ministry: These roles require some education and training, but newcomers are always welcome. After completion of their training, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are commissioned by the bishop.
