Parish Ministries

Parish Ministries are an important and necessary part of Liturgy. Ministers must be registered in their parishes and must have received all of the sacraments necessary to be in good standing with the church. What talents has God blessed you with? Here are some opportunities for you to share those with your parish family.

Sacristan: Prepare for Mass. Arrive 1 hour prior to mass to unlock, turn on the lights, and prepare the altar. Spend approximately 15 minutes following mass to put things away, turn things off, and be sure things are secure.

Reader: Arrive 20 minutes prior to mass, having reviewed and practiced the Sunday readings and announcements. Be advised that the St. Mary's 9:00 mass is Live-streamed.

Eucharistic Minister: Arrive 15 minutes prior to mass, prayerfully prepared to assist in the distribution of communion.

Usher: Arrive 30 minutes before mass. Greet and welcome those coming in. Seat them, as needed. Take up the collection.

The music ministry is another opportunity. Instruments, especially piano and organ, are in high demand.

If you are a photographer and would like to be involved in the special events and reception of sacraments, there is a place for you.

Each ministry has its own particular training and schedule. There are many other ministries, outside of mass, that may be where your talent lies. Please call the regional office (360-532-8300) for more information regarding your interest and how you can serve.


Eucharistic Adoraton

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

"The Church and the world have a great need of eucharistic worship. Jesus waits for us in this sacrament of love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Him in adoration and in contemplation that is full of faith and ready to make reparation for the great faults and crimes of the world. May our adoration never cease." (St. John Paul II)

“One thing is certain, that next to Holy Communion no act of worship is so pleasing to God, and none is so useful, as the daily visit to our Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament dwelling upon our altars. Know that in one-quarter of an hour which you spend before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament you attain more than in all the good works of the rest of the day.” (St. Alphonsus Liguori)

Adoration Schedule
Wednesdays 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. St. Jerome
Thursdays 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. St. Mary
Saturdays 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Our Lady of Good Help

Companions in Shipwreck

with Fr. Daren Zehnle

In the era of cancel culture and shunning of our neighbors, we should look back at how friendship should be integrated into our lives. It may be as simple as getting to know someone, or going further and visiting them regularly. What can we learn of the true principles of friendship? Who can we learn it from? Look no further than the life of famed author and Catholic, J.R.R. Tolkien. The relationships he exhibited are a wonderful example for all of us to follow, especially with those we may disagree with. As Tolkien described marriage, it’s all about being “companions in shipwreck.”

Follow your host, Fr. Daren Zehnle, as we take a trip to Tolkien’s home of Oxford, and hear wonderful interviews from esteemed people, including author Joseph Pearce, Dr. Mark Atherton - both experts on Professor Tolkien.
