SAVE THE DATE - OCTOBER 1ST

On Sunday, October 1 from noon to 3:00pm, the parish will hold Lay Liturgical Ministry Day in Lower St. John’s.  This day is for all new and current Liturgical Ministers.  All new ministers must attend training before serving as a minister at St. John’s.
The Lay Liturgical Ministry Day will begin with a light lunch in Lower St. John’s and continue with several formation sessions focused on lay liturgical ministry and training sessions for each of our individual liturgical ministries.  Our new online liturgical minister scheduling system will also be introduced and explained. 

Please let us know you’re coming by filling out this brief registration form here.

 

 

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.

GREETERS

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.
