Liturgy

LITURGICAL MINISTRIES:

EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF HOLY COMMUNION:
Registered Cathedral parishioners who are confirmed and regularly attend Mass are invited to distribute Holy Communion at Sunday and Daily Mass.  Eligible individuals are assigned to one Sunday Mass a month and assist at weekday Mass.  If you would like to participate in this very important ministry, please contact Michael Vreeburg at vreeburg@sthelenas.org  or (406)442-5825 ex. 103.

USHERS:
This is a group of dedicated, faith-filled parishioners who weekly volunteer to collect the financial gifts of the people at the Offertory of the Mass and help direct the Communion Procession.  They also assist at special liturgies – ushering people to their seats and being present where needed.  If you are interested in this ministry, please contact Michael Vreeburg at vreeburg@sthelenas.org  or (406)442-5825 ex. 103.

READERS:
This ministry consists of women and men, adults and youth who are chosen because of their particular gift of proclaiming the Sacred Scriptures and to pray the General Intercessions during the Liturgy of the Eucharist.  If you are an active member of the Cathedral Parish, are a strong reader and interested in this ministry, please contact Michael Vreeburg at vreeburg@sthelenas.org  or (406)442-5825 ex. 103.

GREETERS:
Families and individuals are invited to ministers as Greeters – welcoming people coming to Mass and distributing hymnals and bulletins.  The Greeter is the first person that an individual meets upon entering the Cathedral and so has the important role of setting the atmosphere of the liturgical celebration.  If you are interested in this ministry  please contact Michael Vreeburg at vreeburg@sthelenas.org  or (406)442-5825 ex. 103.

GIFT-BEARERS:
All Cathedral Parish families and individuals are invited to bring forward the gifts of bread and wine at the Offertory during Sunday Mass.  Each family has the opportunity to assist as Gift-bearers 2-3 times during the schedule period. If you are interested in this ministry, please contact Michael Vreeburg at vreeburg@sthelenas.org  or (406)442-5825 ex. 103.

LINEN CARE MINISTERS:
These dedicated volunteers launder the purificators, corporals, lavabo towels and altar cloths used during the Sacred Liturgies.  Each member takes a month at a time to launder the linens –  picking up and returning them weekly.  If you are interested in this ministry, please contact Michael Vreeburg at vreeburg@sthelenas.org  or (406)442-5825 ex. 103.

CATHEDRAL BRASS POLISHERS:
This group of volunteers assist with cleaning and polishing the implements used during Mass. The Polishing is done on Saturday morning when needed.  For more information please contact Michael Vreeburg at vreeburg@sthelenas.org  or (406)442-5825 ex. 103.

CATHEDRAL SACRISTANS:
This group of generous volunteers assists preparing the House of the Lord for Sacred Liturgies.  They are normally assigned to minister at one weekday and one Sunday Mass and at other liturgies as needed.  If you are interested in this ministry, please contact Michael Vreeburg at vreeburg@sthelenas.org  or (406)442-5825 ex. 103.

SEAMSTRESSES:
During the Rite of Baptism, the Cathedral Parish provides a white Baptismal Garment as a gift to the newly Baptized when they do not have one of their own.  This robe is an outward sign of their Christian dignity when they become one with Jesus Christ through the Sacrament of Baptism.  This white robe is finished with an embroidered/sewn cross on the front.  The material is provided by the parish.  If you have a talent and a love to sew and would like to minister in this way, please contact Michael Vreeburg at vreeburg@sthelenas.org  or (406)442-5825 ex. 103.
