Altar Linens

Helping to maintain the altar linens is a silent, generous way to serve God and the parish community. Parishioners take turns each week as the primary person or substitute responsible for collecting, cleaning, and pressing the linens used during the Masses and on the altar. Volunteers usually serve two or three times per year. We are always looking for substitute and primary volunteers.

Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) Volunteer

Children's Liturgy is a planned program to enrich our children’s liturgical experience of God’s presence in the ritual proclamation of the Word. CLOW invites children ages 4½ years through the 4th grade to worship and pray together at the 9:00 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. Mass most Sundays of the year. No registration is required for CLOW. Children begin in Mass and are dismissed following the opening prayer. Volunteers participate in teams that escort children to and from Mass, proclaim the Word, sing songs and deliver creative, engaging homilies. Each team is scheduled one Sunday per month. Training and materials are provided.

Elijah Cup

We all need to pray for vocations. Each week, families have the opportunity to bring into their homes a chalice that has held the consecrated blood of our Lord Jesus Christ into their homes. The Elijah Cup serves as a focal point encouraging family prayer for religious vocations in the Archdiocese of Atlanta, for seminarians and for our serving religious. It is a powerful presence and inspires prayer for adults and children alike.

Sacristy Ministry

The Sacristy Ministry is centered on preparation of the altar and altar area for the celebration of Mass. Sacristans arrive at least 20 minutes before the start of Mass. We ensure that the bread and wine are prepared to be brought to the altar during the presentation of gifts. We keep fresh candles on the altar. We replace the corporal (altar cloth), and place purificators (napkins for chalices) and towels out to be used during the celebration of Mass. While we welcome anyone who would like to be a part of this ministry, we are especially in need of teens that would be willing to take on responsibility for the Teen Mass Sunday evening.
