The Sacristan is responsible for the smooth and prayerful celebration of the Eucharistic Liturgy by preparing the building, the sanctuary for Mass, and makes sure that all the ministries needed for Mass (Ushers, Eucharistic Ministers, Servers, Lector and Projectionist) are present and able to perform the necessary tasks. The Sacristan then oversees the Liturgy from beginning to end so the Mass goes smoothly and without incident. At the end of Mass the Sacristan performs the necessary tasks so that the next Mass can be celebrated well. Training is provided.
Sacristan Procedure

Eucharistic Ministers
Eucharistic Ministers distribute the Body and Blood of Jesus to worshipers. Parishioners who serve in this ministry must meet the following guidelines: be a practicing Catholic in the Church; be fully initiated through Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation; be active in the parish and faithful to the Sacraments; be approved by the pastor. Volunteers are always needed to serve as Eucharistic Ministers at all daily and weekend Masses. High school students are encouraged to become involved in weekend liturgies. Training is provided.
Eucharistic Minister Procedure

This important ministry of hospitality offers worshipers a spirit of warmth and welcome as they enter St. Genevieve's Church. Greeters distribute Worship Aids, help take up the collection, select a family to bring up the offertory gifts, distribute bulletins at the end of Mass and pick up Worship Aids left in the pew after Mass. Training is provided.
Usher Procedure

Altar Servers
St. Genevieve's group of altar servers assist at the Liturgy celebrations and other special Holy days. Altar serving is open to all parish youth who are in 3rd grade or older. Parents are also encouraged to serve with younger servers until the server becomes more experienced. This is an excellent way for young parishioners to help our Church and serve the parish. Training is provided.
