Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there also
will my servant be. The Father will honor whoever serves me.

- John 12:26


Men and women of the parish are urged to serve, that is to assist at the celebration of Mass on weekdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

From the earliest days of the church there were those from the congregation who would assist at mass, that is deacons, lectors and acolytes. Acolytes serve at the altar; they prepare the altar and sacred vessels. An acolyte may also be cross bearer or incense at Sunday Mass.

Serving at the Eucharistic table and at various liturgical celebrations you draw directly from the wells of salvation, the strength that is necessary to live well.

If you are interested in volunteering your time with one of our Ministries, please call the parish offices at (212) 288-6250, or stop by the parish office at 406 East 80th Street to pick up a form.
