Altar Servers

Youth of our parish, 3rd grade and beyond are welcome to minister as Altar Servers for our weekend and Holy Day liturgies.  They also serve at weddings and 'special occasion' Masses. 

Eucharistic Ministers
Eucharistic Ministers distribute Communion at weekend and Holy Day Masses.  In addition, ministers may serve on one of the Homebound teams, visiting homebound parish members, as well as several nursing homes in the area.

Lectors
Lectors proclaim the Word of God through the reading of Scripture at weekend and Holy Day Masses.  Youth Lectors (grades 7-12) begin their training by lectoring at the 8:00 a.m. weekday Masses.

Children's Liturgy
Children age 4 through 1st Reconciliation are invited to participate in the Children's Liturgy of the Word, offered each Sunday at the 11:00 a.m. Mass.  Children, as well as their adult catechists, gather after the Gathering Rite at Mass.  The children return to the main assembly for Liturgy of the Eucharist.  Please call the Faith Formation office for further information at

Music Ministry
The Children's Choir is open to all students grades 3 through 8 in both Saint Anne School and the community. Rehearsals are held every other week in the church from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. from September until May and the children sing at Mass on the first Sunday of each month. Please contact Director of Music, Brendan Lowery, to register.

The Adult Choir is comprised of interested participants ages 14 and up. The primary responsibility of the choir is to enhance the liturgy with music and to congressional singing. 

The choir sings at the 11:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday mornings from September until June. The choir often sings for Catholic holidays and holy days throughout the liturgical year. The choir also participates in an annual Lessons and Carols program during advent. 

Rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. in the church. For more information or to register, please contact Brendan Lowery, Director of Pastoral Music at blowery@stanneparish.com
