Liturgical Ministries

Ministers of Communion

Members of this ministry serve the parish by delivering the Body and Blood of Christ to the congregation at Mass. Some members may also perform the same service for parishioners who are homebound.


Communion

Lectors

Lectors proclaim the Word of God during the Mass. They are parishioners gifted with a clear speaking voice, willing to share their love for the Word of God and willing to spend time preparing to proclaim the Word.


Lectors

Choir

Choir members participate in parish ministry through their gift of song. They also assist and encourage our worshiping community to express and share their faith through song. The choir rehearses on Thursday evenings and sings at 10:30 Mass on Sunday. The repertoire is large and varied, and includes many classical sacred works. In addition, some members of the choir cantor at weekend Masses.

For more information or to arrange an audition, please contact our Director of Music, David Szanto at music@ascensionofourlord.ca


Parish Choir

Ministers of Hospitality

In this ministry, members assist the community as it gathers for worship by greeting and welcoming parishioners and visitors, fostering the feeling of being “at home”, distributing worship aids and the parish bulletin. They also organize the taking up of collection, and assist those who will bring up the gifts during Mass.
