As a worshiping community we are ALL called to actively participate in our liturgies through song, prayer, silence, and ritual action. Some are called to specific liturgical ministries to serve as greeters, lectors, ministers of communion, liturgical assistants, music ministers, and to assume other roles for the liturgies at St. John's as well as at the special Creighton University liturgies. Students are invited to discern their gifts and offer them in service to our worshiping community in one of the areas of liturgical ministry.
Lectors proclaim the Word of God. As a lector you help the community recognize God present in the liturgy of the Word. We invite anyone with a good speaking voice, an ability to read in public, and a willingness to study scripture to volunteer. Formation and training are offered in the fall and on an individual basis. Please contact Chase Becker, Liturgy Coordinator at 402-280-1128 for more information.
MINISTERS OF COMMUNION
Ministers of Communion, EME, distribute the Body and Blood of Christ to the Faithful during Mass. Eucharistic Ministers attend formation and training sessions and that are scheduled each term. Formation and training is offered in the fall and on an individual basis. Please contact Chase Becker, Liturgy Coordinator at 402-280-1128 for more information.
CHOIR AND MUSICIANS
St. John's invites vocal and instrumental musicians from the parish and Creighton University to join music ministry. Please contact Molly Mattingly, Director of Music Ministry at 402-280-2203 for more information.
Liturgical Assistants - Altar Servers assist with the preparation of the liturgy as well as during the Mass. Liturgical Assistants serve at the weekend liturgies, holy days and special University liturgies. Please contact Chase Becker, Liturgy Coordinator at 402-280-1128 for more information.
We will be updating this information soon.
Greeters or Ministers of Hospitality help to create a welcoming environment at Mass for all those who come to worship. Greeters extend a welcome and sense of hospitality by greeting arriving worshippers, distributing mass programs, and attending to other needs that may arise during liturgy.
