Ministers of the Eucharist
Ministers of the Eucharist are certified lay ministers who can serve in two capacities: assist in distribution of the Eucharistic elements (the Body and Blood of Christ) during Eucharistic celebrations in Church, and/or take communion to the sick, elderly, and shut-ins of the community. (Certification is granted when a formation class is taken. The Pastor has the discretion to use ME's without certification).
Servers are young people who assist the presider at Mass in various ways, and also help with set up and clean up before and after. Training is provided by the Pastor or someone assigned by the Pastor. Contact Paula Vance at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Ministers of Hospitality
Ministers of Hospitality, made up of ushers and greeters, greet and assist parishioners and guests as they enter the Church for worship, and throughout the services. Ushers also assist with the gift procession during the liturgy, and distribute bulletins at the conclusion of Mass. A meeting is generally held once a year for training, formation, and discussion of issues. Contact Chuck Hilger at 248-305-8485 for more information.

Wedding Coordinators (typically assigned in two or three-person teams) assist the bride, groom and their families through the rehearsal process, typically the night before the wedding.
