Join a Ministry

Each week at Mass, we have 75 to 90 volunteers who work in and behind the scenes at this one Hampstead location. When our Surf City location opens for the summer on Memorial weekend, there will be an impressive 125 to 150 people each and every week serving at Mass. That’s a lot of people!

We invite you to actively participate and experience the benefits of being involved. Whole families of all ages can be joyful greeters. If you’re in third grade and above, you can be an altar server. And good readers in 8th grade and above can train to be lectors. If you have been confirmed and are at least age 16, you can learn how to share Jesus with others as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion. Sign up in the Gathering Area for training sessions.

If you’d like to help, but you’re not sure what you have to offer, you can discover your God-given spiritual gifts in an inspiring workshop on Wednesday, May 15 at 2PM.
