As a worshiping community we are ALL called to actively participate in our liturgies through song, prayer, silence, and ritual action. Service in one of the Liturgical ministries listed here is an excellent way to fulfill our baptismal call of service to one another. Whether participation is through “behind the scenes” preparation and planning, or through a public role of service within the Mass, parishioner contributions help our liturgies to be truly life-giving celebrations. Please prayerfully consider joining one of these ministries.

Ushers - Ministers of hospitality welcome parishioners and visitors at every Mass. They aid in seating, collecting, and taking up the gifts, directing the communion procession, and provide assistance in emergency situations. As our parish has grown, we need volunteers across several Mass times. Please reach out to Michael Mangold at [email protected] for any questions.
Nativity’s Ambassadors greet our parishioners and visitors with a welcome spirit and open hearts. They help to cultivate an environment that spreads love of God to all who enter our doors. In this role you would be answering questions about our church, helping new parishioners to get registered, hand out bulletins, and welcoming all to Mass.
“I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” Matthew 25:35
