Liturgical Ministry

Liturgy is the heart of our community. Liturgical ministers enhance our experience through service and prayer. If you are interested in becoming trained in one of these ministries please contact us by emailing newman@newmancenter.org.

Lectors

With weekly preparation and meditation on scripture, lectors proclaim the living Word each weekend.

Altar Servers

These ministers help to facilitate worship by assisting the presider during Liturgy. Anyone 10 years or older is welcome to participate in this ministry.

Hospitality

Ministers create an atmosphere of welcome, gather and bring the gifts to the altar, and assist individuals with finding seating. Anyone is invited to this ministry: families, individuals, and college students.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

These women and men are called to help serve the Body and Blood of Christ during Liturgy. One must be at least 18 years old to serve.

Music Ministry

Music ministers enhance our liturgies through the gift of song as vocalists and/or instrumentalists. Anyone is welcome to share their musical gifts.

Baking Eucharistic Bread

These ministers prepare the unleavened bread for our Eucharistic celebration. Ministers typically are responsible for weekend bread baking 2-3 times per semester.


Social Ministry

These are the ways we serve our sisters and brothers in need; opportunities include service in our parish, the broader Laramie community, and beyond.

Welcoming Committee

This committee serves to invite and welcome new members to our community.

Martha and Mary (Women’s Group)

This group meets monthly and is open to all women. Attempting to model Mary in a Martha’s world, women in this group work toward serving our faith community, growing spiritually, and enjoying Catholic fellowship.

Bereavement Ministry

These ministers assist with outreach to grieving individuals and families experiencing loss.

Baptismal Blanket Ministry

Hand-knitted or crocheted white blankets are created by members of the parish and presented to the family during the Sacrament of Baptism. This symbol welcomes the infant into our community. Those who are experienced knitters and crocheters are invited to help with this hands-on ministry.

Preparing Meals

These ministers work to help prepare meals and food for Sunday Suppers, Funerals, and Parish Receptions. This ministry is vital to helping support community members grieving the loss of a family member, building a stronger community, and offering hospitality.

Ministry of Care

People in this group visit the homebound and hospitalized members of our parish.

Education and Formation

Growing in faith is an integral part of Catholic life. We need assistance in facilitating, teaching, and supporting these faith formation opportunities:

Family Faith Formation (Grades K-5)

Ministers work with the Director of Pastoral Ministry and other volunteers facilitating programming directed towards helping children K-5 learn about their faith during weekly sessions on Monday or Tuesday nights

Youth (Grades 6-12)

Ministers work with the Director of Pastoral Ministry and other volunteers helping youth explore scripture, liturgical and sacramental faith formation, and ways to live the gospel in everyday experiences and relationships. Middle School Youth Ministry meets Wednesday nights and High School Youth Ministry meets Sunday nights.

Marriage Preparation

Married mentor couples share their wisdom to help facilitate marriage preparation for engaged couples.
