All Altar Servers, please contact Mike McKee for your assignments at 860-739-0433.

Lectors

Lectors proclaim the Word of God during the celebration of the Eucharist. This call is not merely to read words on a page, but rather it is a practiced, thoughtful, cogent and prayerful oration vital to the celebration of the Mass. Please call Linda Young at 203-415-8202.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion administer the Body and Blood of Christ as an essential part of the Eucharistic celebration. Since these ministers perform a sacred role during the celebration of the Mass, anyone interested in serving needs the Pastor’s approval to function as a EMHC. Please call Jim Barnes at 860-271-9026.
