Lay Ministries

Each and every one of us is called to ministry in one form or another. Lay ministry is a key part of our parish life, and one of many ways to respond to Christ's call. If you would like to serve as an usher, on one of our guilds, or be trained as a eucharistic minister, follow the link below.

Groups

In addition to altar-centered lay ministry, Emmanuelites come together in small groups based on shared interests and enrichment. People of every level of faith and doubt are welcome to participate.
