Liturgical Ministries

Saint Francis de Sales Parish is a vibrant community offering opportunities for growing closer to Jesus Christ through prayer, service, and fellowship.

The liturgical ministries are directly related to daily, weekly, and holiday liturgies.

Altar Servers

Altar Servers assist the priest and deacon at the Mass, offering the responses to the prayers and dialogues, and participating in the singing and chants of the liturgy.

Music Ministry

The St. Francis de Sales Music Ministry serves the parish by sharing their vocal and/or instrumental talents to Glorify God! Through musical prayer, we enhance the Liturgies as instrumentalists, choir, and cantors striving to bring all present to deeper worship.


Lectors proclaim God’s word at each liturgy when they read Scripture from the Old and New Testaments. Lectors also read Sunday announcements and lead the congregation during the prayers of the faithful.

Eucharistic Ministers

Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist assist the celebrant, other priests, and deacons with the distribution of communion. Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist also help bring the Eucharist to our infirm and area nursing and group homes.
