Carmel Bulletin, 29 November 2015
As the season of preparation for Christmas is now upon us, we are beginning to invite liturgical ministers to serve at our Christmas Masses.
You will find sign-up sheets as usual in the parish centre today. We need assistance in the following roles:
- Computer operators for the data projector
- Head collection wardens
- Offertory procession
- Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
Altar servers can sign up to help on the sheet in the work sacristy, while Ministers of the Word should have received an email this week asking whether they will be available at Christmas time.
This year at our Christmas Masses, we will be posting a sheet on the whiteboard in the parish centre of all the volunteers who have signed up. When ministers arrive at Mass to serve, we ask that you “sign in” on the sheet so that we can quickly check that ministers are present, and if we need to find replacements. This will help us ensure that our Christmas Masses go as smoothly as possible.
I thank all our liturgical ministers for their continued commitment to our community. Please consider serving at what is a very important time in the Church’s year, and a crucial time for welcoming parishioners and visitors alike.
