Liturgical Ministries

All students at St. Ignatius are encouraged to engage in full, active participation during our weekly liturgies. There are also many opportunities for students to share their talents by participating in the following ministries:

Altar Servers Grades 5 – 8

Altar servers help lead the assembly in the worship of God. By leading the processions, respectfully handling the sacred vessels and holy books, and reverently assisting the priest and deacon, altar servers help guide the congregation’s attention to the true presence of Jesus Christ in the celebration of the Eucharist. This opportunity to serve at school liturgies is open to all students in grades 5, 6, 7, and 8. At the end of the 4th grade year, aspiring servers will complete a one-hour training, during which they are trained in the sanctuary and sacristy. Others can be trained at any time by appointment by calling the Parish Office.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion Grades 7 – 8

Eighth grade students may choose to serve as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion. Seventh graders may attend training after receiving the sacrament of Confirmation.

Lectors Grades 7 – 8

Students may have the opportunity to proclaim the Word of God at our school Masses throughout the year.
