    Everyone in the Marywood University community is encouraged to participate actively as a member of the assembly or to offer individual gifts as music minister, lector, extraordinary minister of Holy Communion, acolyte (server), minister of hospitality (Greeter), artist, dancer, or sacristan.

    • Lectors proclaim the Word of God in the scriptures so that the worshipping assembly can hear Christ speaking to them in their own time.
    • Acolytes (Altar Servers) assist the presider at the altar.
    • Extraordinary Ministers of  Holy Communion enable the assembly to unite themselves with Christ, and with one another, by assisting with the distribution of the Body and the Blood of Christ during the communion rite.
    • Ministers of Hospitality represent the entire assembly in creating a welcoming atmosphere for all who come to worship.
    • Musicians, Artists, Sacristans, and Dancers use their particular gifts to enhance the worship of the entire community.

    Music Ministry-Note: Subject to Change During Pandemic

    “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, as in all wisdom you teach and admonish one another, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.” Colossians 3:16

    • Chapel Choir leads singing at liturgies. All members of the Marywood community are invited to join.  Please check the Campus Ministry calendar for rehearsal dates.
