Church Environment

In the spirit of integrating both prayer and work, this ministry helps create a church environment of both beauty and reverence according to the Liturgical seasons. Our ministers tend to the floral and plant arrangements within our church on a weekly basis, and aid in the setup and takedown of the Liturgical colors according to the Roman Catholic calendar. Our busiest times of the year are Christmas and Easter. For the youth, these two occasions can be used as service hours. Contact Brooke DeVille at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Altar Society

 

The Altar Society of Mary, Queen of Peace Catholic Church is a group of women from the parish who offer their dedicated service to the Church.  We are involved in the life of the Church in a very special way.  Through our efforts, we assist the pastor in maintaining the nave, altar, sanctuary, and sacristy.  This includes cleaning and maintaining all linens and cloths, caring for the vestments, cleaning the church, and ordering and maintaining inventory of all items needed for our church services. We also decorate for the liturgical seasons and care for the plants and flowers.

Ushers

The Usher and Greeter Ministry Mission is an integral part of the liturgy and a mission supporting the Parish Mission of Building Vibrant Catholic Community. At the center of the mission is hospitality (making the Assembly feel welcome at all times).

Ushers and greeters open doors and greet the Assembly as they arrive; they are frequently the first point of contact for the Assembly. At the conclusion of the Mass, ushers and greeters open doors, hand out the bulletins, and offer pleasant farewell.

Additionally, ushers help the Assembly to:

o    Find comfortable seating,

o    To gather and carry up the offertory gifts.

o    To process in an orderly fashion to receive the Holy Eucharist.

o    Assist with emergencies.

Of course, ushers still take up collections.

For socially outgoing men and women (including youth) who enjoy greeting and helping people, serving in the Usher and Greeter Ministry is a great way to meet some of the outstanding people of our Parish and to grow one’s faith and serve God in the process.  If you are interested in being a regular usher or greeter at a weekend Mass, please contact Larry Saunders at 985-792-1882 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
