Liturgical Ministries

“The Liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the fount from which all the Church’s power flows” (CSL, 10).

"There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit;there are different forms of service but the same Lord; there are different workings but the same God who produces all of them in everyone. To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit.  But one and the same Spirit produces all of these, distributing them individually to each person as he wishes” (1 Cor. 12:4- 11).

Liturgy and Environment Committee - A group of parishioners passionate about making the liturgies at Saint Boniface Church come alive. The group gathers to read and discuss Church documents and how Saint Boniface celebrates the liturgy as one community with many gifts. The Committee's focus is to enable and promote "full, conscious and active participation" of the assembly (Sacrosanctum Concillium, 14) through prayer, music, the Word, Eucharist, and the environment.

Sacristans are responsible for preparing the sanctuary for the liturgy.

Servers- Boys and girls in grades four and above are invited to assist the priest at weekday and weekend liturgies as servers. Adult servers, male and female, are also needed to serve at funerals.

Ushers serve the parish by assisting those attending Mass. This ministry includes taking up the collection, passing out bulletins, and seeing to the needs and safety of the congregation. There is always a need for men and women to serve in this capacity.
