Ministry at Mass

Find the source and summit of your faith. Become a liturgical minister.

Mass at the Chapel of Christ the Teacher gains its depth and richness through robust student participation in liturgical ministries.

Students work with our priests and Campus Ministry staff to create a lively, welcoming atmosphere for celebration of the Eucharist throughout the week, filling roles as:

  • Readers
  • Greeters
  • Cantors
  • Choir members
  • Sacristans
  • Lay Eucharistic ministers
  • Altar servers

All liturgical ministers receive training to carry out their roles with joy and reverence, adding beauty to the celebration of the Mass and forming them for life-long liturgical participation.
