What They Do: Liturgy Club serves the spiritual and liturgical life of the Bishop Carroll community.
Liturgy Club Mass Teams coordinate the planning of and the preparation for Holy Mass and other liturgies that are held in the AC, Cave or in the Madonna Chapel. These teams help create a sacred space where the Bishop Carroll community may gather for the Holy Eucharist and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
Lectors assist during Holy Mass by proclaiming the word of God. These young men and women must be truly qualified and carefully prepared for this office, so that the faithful will develop a warm and lively love for Sacred Scripture from listening to the reading from the sacred texts.
Altar Servers assist during Holy Mass and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
The Servi Madonnae Eucharistiae serve the people of God through their knowledge in the sanctuary, their servant leadership in the community and their devotion in prayer.
Training for Mass teams, lectors and servers are held at the beginning of the semester.
