Eucharistic Ministers

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion assist in distributing Holy Communion at Sunday Masses and special celebrations. Eucharistic ministers must have received the Sacrament of Confirmation and be actively practicing their faith at Church of the Ascension. Training is required. Eucharistic ministers are regularly scheduled with opportunities to volunteer for holy days and other celebrations.  For more information contact Craig and Judy Arnold 685-9305.

We provide prayers and Holy Communion at least 2 times a week in all of the assisted living facilities within our borders and to the homebound. One of our priests visits to celebrate Mass or Sacrament of the Sick every other month, and  we try to gather the residents who are our Parishioners once a week for a communal prayer service with Holy Communion.  We offer Holy Communion daily at St Luke’s South’. Contact Jean in the church office if you are called to help with this ministry.

Arts and Environment

EVER WONDER HOW THE CHURCH LOOKS SO BEAUTIFUL AT THE CHANGING OF THE LITURGICAL SEASONS?

Arts and Environment is entrusted with ensuring that our church has a liturgically correct, reverent, and prayerful environment throughout the year.  Our volunteers arrange and water flowers and plants throughout the year, both in the Sanctuary and Gathering Area.   We keep the candles filled with oil. A&E works closely with the Liturgy Committee, particularly when the Liturgical Seasons change and especially at Easter and Christmas.  We need volunteers throughout the year for a few hours a week, on special occasions, and to prepare our beautiful Church for Easter and Christmas.
