Opportunities for Lay Ministry at Grace


Service as an acolyte enriches the individual's understanding and appreciation of the worship service. In addition it develops fellowship and teamwork among those who serve together. Acolytes serve important roles during our worship services by carrying the processional cross, carrying the torches, and by assisting the celebrant during the Eucharist.

Alter Guild Member

We believe the ministry of the Altar Guild is to serve both physically and prayerfully at the Lord's altar. Altar Guild members perform the "behind the scenes" preparation and clean up of the vessels and vestments used during the celebration of the sacraments.


For many visitors and friends, the first point of contact with Grace Church is the greeter who welcomes them to our church. Greeters are a warm welcoming presence as well as a source of information.

Lay Eucharistic Minister

Lay Eucharistic Ministers assist the clergy by administering the chalice during communion.


Lectors read the daily lessons at the Mass.


Ushers are responsible for greeting parishioners and guests as they enter the church, providing the appropriate bulletins, answering questions and assisting with seating. They walk the gifts to the altar, pass the collection plates, count the congregation, ring the bells, and see to any other needs that may arise during the worship service. Following the service they clean the pews for the next service.


Vergers are lay ministers who assist the clergy in the conduct of public worship, especially in preparing those who serve in the liturgy and the y marshal the processions.
