Lay ministers help with the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass.  All "EMs" are commissioned for service to the UD community for the duration of their studies here. A short training session is held at the beginning of each semester.

MASS COORDINATORS

Mass Coordinators facilitate the prayer of the community by scheduling, coordinating, recruiting, and mentoring liturgical ministers.  They assist with preparing the needed materials, books, and supplies for liturgy.  They grow in their own spirituality through weekly preparation sessions and faith-sharing.  This is an ideal role for students who have been active liturgical ministers in their parishes and high schools.

If interested, please pick up an application today in the IC Chapel or a Residence Hall Chapel. Applications are due to Kaie Mathews (Liberty Hall Room 209) by 5 PM on Tuesday, September 2. Contact Katie Mathews at mathewsk1@udayton.edu if you have any questions.

ACOLYTES/SERVERS

Training:  
September 3         Immaculate Conception Chapel, 7:30-8:30 PM

Servers assist the presider, bearing candles and the cross in procession, and fulfilling other roles in the liturgy.

SPANISH LANGUAGE LITURGICAL MINISTERS

UD celebrates at least one Mass in Spanish each semester (usually two) and incorporates the Spanish language into other Masses on special occasions. Therefore, native Spanish speakers (or students with a strong interest or fluency in Spanish) are needed to prepare and minister at these Masses. Please contact Katie Mathews, Graduate Assistant for Campus Liturgies, at 937.229.3973.

MUSIC MINISTERS

Singers and instrumentalists lead the sung prayer of the assembly at our campus liturgies.  UD's UnderGraduate Music Ministry (UGMM) program prepares students for leadership roles in music ministry.  Visit our Music Ministry page for more information about UD Music Ministry, or contact Jim Pera, Campus Minister for Liturgical Music, at 937.229.2052.
