Art & Environment

This group of volunteers uses their artistic talents to fashion floral, banner, and other decorations to enhance the interior of the church for the liturgical seasons. In this way, they help to focus our thoughts on the mystery of God’s love and redemption of us all.

Extra Ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Eucharistic Ministers are an indispensable part of our Eucharistic celebrations. They assist the priest in the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass and, in the absence of a priest, at Services of Holy Communion. Some make home visits, bringing the gift of the Lord and their faith to the sick and home-bound.

Greeters

Greeters are often the first persons encountered by those who have come to the church to celebrate. Greeters assist with passing out hymnals and worship aids, with seating, collections and bulletin distribution.

Lectors

These men and women minister to the parish during Mass and other liturgies in the proclamation of Scripture. They devote time and preparation to understand the Word of God so that all may hear and be open to God transforming their lives.

Sacristans

Sacristans are individuals who minister before and after the Mass to prepare for a liturgical celebration, and to be sure that all that was used at a particular liturgy is stored once again for further use.

Shut-in Ministry

This group of volunteers regularly visits and brings the Eucharist to the homebound of the parish and the nursing homes on the south side of Terre Haute.  Their visit brings the caring support to those who are no longer able to attend parish activities and notifies the pastor and parish leaders of special sacramental needs such as the Anointing of the Sick or Reconciliation.
