Adult Altar Server
Are you available to help at the Mass? Queen of the Universe is in need of Adult Altar servers who are available during the day to help with Funeral Masses. Funeral Masses are usually at 10:30 AM (Tuesday – Saturday) Training is provided.
Just like the four seasons, the Liturgical seasons change. Helping implement the ideas and designs for the changing liturgical seasons requires a team of dedicated and creative volunteers.
Extra-Ordinary Minister of the Eucharist
The Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion is a very important and humbling role. An Extraordinary Minister is responsible for delivering our Lord in the fullness of the Eucharist to our parish family. Extraordinary Ministers are appointed by the Archbishop and Commissioned by the Pastor for service to the Church of Queen of the Universe ONLY. The appointment is valid for three years. You may only serve one liturgical ministry at a time. Your Ministry to the Queen includes service at Mass. It also provides the opportunity for service to our Homebound, The Statesman Nursing Home and Woodbourne Assisted Living. Please PRAY to our Lord for guidance and humility.
Greeters set a positive tone for Mass. They make a difference in people’s lives, simply by saying “hello” or “Good morning”. Greeters are asked to arrive 25-30 minutes prior to Mass so we are in position to welcome our early arrivals. Please pray to our Lord for direction. Where does he want you? Where can you make a difference in people’s lives?
Proclaiming the Word of God! Think about what that means. Taking the Word of God and sharing it in such a way that you touch hearts and souls. Allowing yourself to be used to do God’s will brings you closer to God’s path toward holiness. We all have gifts, did our Lord give you a gift that could be used for sharing his divine word? Training will be provided to help you sharpen your gifts.

Since Vatican II, singing has become an integral part of the celebration of Mass. Members in our parish Music Ministry volunteer their time and talents to lead the congregation in musical prayer. Queen’s Music Ministry includes the need for instrumentalists, cantors, and choir members to provide the parish with sacred and diverse musical prayer experiences. We all have gifts to share. Consider sharing your gift of music. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an audition, please contact our Director of Liturgical Music: David Westawski
Consider joining a ministry that serves everyone who comes to Mass at Queen. Here’s a team that sets the tone every time they put themselves out there. The Men and Women who volunteer to keep order and flow in our parking lot are the same Men and Women who put their family, friends and neighbors ahead of themselves whenever there is a special event. (That special event is the MASS) If you have any questions regarding this ministry or would like to sign up to help please contact the Rectory.
