We are an active parish which relies on the volunteers from within to help. Each Ministry is an invitation and an opportunity to serve and to be involved in the Parish community.
If you are interested in any of the ministries please contact the Parish Office or send us your details here.
Altar Servers/Acolytes Assist on the sanctuary in the celebration of the Mass. Altar servers may be either boys or girls in Yr 4 and above, provided they have made their 1st Communion. Acolytes perform similar tasks but acolytes are an official and permanent “order” of the Church. Acolytes are formally instituted into their ministry with the approval of the bishop. They are permanent ministers of Holy Communion and may lead a church service in the absence of a priest.
