Liturgical Ministries at St. Barnabas
Please call the Rectory at 636-240-4556 if you are interested in serving in any of the
St. Barnabas Parish Ministries.
EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF HOLY COMMUNION- Assist the Priest distributing Holy Communion at weekend and Holy Day Liturgies.
ADORERERS OF THE MOST BLESSED SACRAMENT- "Could you not watch one hour with Me?" Matthew 26:40 We encourage each of you to choose an hour each week to sit quietly in Church with Our Lord. Many blessings and graces flow for Our Lord to those that are able to devote this time to Him. St. Barnabas Church is open from every day following morning Mass around 10:00am until 1:00pm daily. First Friday adoration and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament begins after the 9:00 Holy Mass and continues until the 7:00p.m. First Friday Mass. Following Mass, Exposition will continue until Benediction at 11:45p.m. Holy Mass will be celebrated at Midnight on First Friday into First Saturday.
GIFT BEARERS- Individuals or entire families may volunteer to carry the Offertory Gifts to the altar during weekend and Holy Day Liturgies.
READERS- Readers are always needed for the First and Second Readings in Holy Mass and the Responsorial Psalm on weekend and Holy Day Services.
USHERS- Greet those attending weekend and Holy Day services. Ushers take up the Offertory collection and assist others as needed before and after Holy Masses.
SERVERS- Students in grades 5-12 interested in assisting the priest at Holy Mass at the altar. We also have a group of young men trained to assist at the Traditional Latin Holy Mass.
Appointment lists for each of the above Liturgical Ministries are prepared and mailed to the ministers every three months.
The lists are posted in the vestibule in the back of church.
