Ministry Schedules 

The next time you’re at Mass, take a look around and see how many people it takes to accomplish all that happens at Mass. We call these people “Liturgical Ministers,” and we have a fantastic group of them at St. Bernard. Scroll down to learn more about what these ministries are all about and if you’d like to help. If you see something that interests you, contact the person listed by each ministry.

Altar Server

Altar Servers assist the priest at Mass or other services. This is a great way for them to learn about the Eucharist. The Altar Server Ministry is open to all children of St. Bernard Parish who are in grades 5 – 8. A training session is held each fall. Altar Servers are normally scheduled one or two times per month throughout the year.

St. Bernard Parish strives to be a welcoming faith community energized by the Eucharist and sensitive to the needs of all. Ushers are people who have a great sense of hospitality. Ushers answer questions, hand out song sheets, help families find seating and coordinate the movement of the congregation during Holy Communion. Following Mass, ushers ensure that the church is prepared to receive those who will attend the next Mass by tidying up the pews.
