Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, Altar Servers

St. Mary’s Church uses Eucharistic Ministers and Lectors at all weekend Masses.  Training is done by Deacon Ron Ronacher and, at some time, a workshop at the Archdiocese is required.  Ministers may choose the Mass they prefer to serve, are scheduled on a bi-monthly basis and are questioned in advance of scheduling for availability.  The schedule is sent to all via email (or individually by mail), posted on the website and in the Ministers room in Church.  Eucharistic Ministers may also visit the sick/homebound or serve at funeral Masses.

Parishioners may also act as Altar Servers starting in the 4th grade through adulthood.  Adults are generally scheduled as servers at each weekend Mass but children are welcome to act at any time they are available.

If you have a desire to serve in any of these ministries, please contact Deacon Ron at the Parish Center or by email (deconron@stmarysnutley.org) for further information.
