Liturgical Ministries

 

 

We are glad that you are interested in serving as a liturgical minister at the University of Dayton. There are a number of ways to become involved and help support liturgies. Please read more about these opportunities below. In order to participate, please attend a training session, which takes place each semester. After you attend a training session, you will be commissioned for service to the UD community. Please contact Scott Paeplow for more information. 

LECTORS/READERS

Lectors proclaim the Word of God to the gathered community.  

EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS

Lay ministers help with the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass. 

MASS COORDINATORS

Mass Coordinators (MCs) 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.  

ACOLYTES/SERVERS

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

SPANISH LANGUAGE LITURGICAL MINISTERS

UD celebrates one bilingual Mass each semester or more 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. 

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.
