St. James offers a variety of ways to receive and get involved in providing support to all parishioners.
Usher and Greeter Ministry
The mission for the Ushers and Greeters Ministry at St. James is to assist all people in receiving the Lord. We are the visible ministers who provide personal service and courtesies to parishioners before, during and after Mass. This includes welcoming, seating, helping to make people with special needs comfortable and offering any assistance needed by parishioners. In doing so, we enhance the experience of the Liturgy for all parishioners.
Music ministry’s role is simply to be facilitators of that connection. We guide and encourage the singing of prayer. We embrace those moments when a song says everything that someone is feeling in that moment. That connection is tangible and moving. The blessings bestowed in those moments are why we do what we do.
St. James Audio/Visual Ministry
The mission of the Audio/Visual Ministry of St. James is to provide the gathered community the opportunity to experience full, active participation in Liturgical and other celebrations by providing the best available sound and video slides and presentations.
Loaves and Fishes Ministry
The mission of St. James Loaves and Fishes Ministry is to serve those within our parish community as their needs for a helping meal are made known. Our hope as we offer a nourishing, hot meal is that its recipient will know that they are remembered by their faith family during this time of difficulty and are not alone.
In collaboration with the Pastor, Pastoral Council, liturgical ministers and parish staff, the Liturgy Committee will assist with planning, coordinating, implementing, and reviewing parish liturgies; emphasizing opportunities to enhance the liturgical experience, welcoming and active participation of all involved.
