This is a new ministry here at St. Elizabeth Seton. Because of the limited time frame between each Sunday liturgy, the numerous liturgical ministries represented at each Mass, and the need to facilitate better communication and coordination between all represented ministries at a particular liturgy, a person is needed to facilitate communication between all these volunteers at each Mass. This will be the responsibility of the Mass Coordinator.
The Mass Coordinator is responsible to coordinate all liturgical ministries present at their individual weekend Mass. This individual is responsible for: communicating relevant information pertaining to that Mass to all affected ministries and making sure that each ministry is fully staffed so that the Mass flows in a sacred, seamless and prayerful manner. The ministries under the guidance of the Mass Coordinator for their assigned weekend Liturgy includes the following:
• Altar Servers
• Extraordinary Ministers of Communion
For the individual Mass Coordinator to be most effective, he/she is trained in the various liturgical aspects of the Mass, as well as the responsibilities of the various ministries under their guidance. The Mass Coordinator needs to be calm, yet assertive, in their demeanor so as not to disturb the sacredness of the liturgy.
If you are interested in helping with this new, but important ministry, please call Deacon Bart at (630) 416-3325 ext. 73.
