The ministries form a vital part of our parish and are essential to the function and execution of every mass. Are you interested in becoming a volunteer? See below for information on the many ways your talents or interests can benefit the entire parish.
Bishop Daniel Miehm would like to hear your beautiful voices! As part of the renewal of liturgy here at the Cathedral, we are hoping to see greater participation of the congregation in song. Please consider joining the choir or becoming a cantor!
Ministry of Lectors
If you have ever considered becoming a lector and/or commentator, now is the time! You will receive education for your role.
The Cathedral Altar Servers Team (CAST) was started in January 2015 as a means to unite young people and families around the beautiful ministry of serving at the altar.
Students from Grade 3 onward are invited to join. The CAST meets regularly for training sessions followed by fun social time.
In 2016, the growing number of members encouraged CAST to be divided into two age groups, Seniors and Juniors. All CAST members are prepared in the art of serving the altar for masses and other liturgical celebrations.
We are always happy to welcome new CAST members, so please join! If you would like more information or if you would like to join, please see below for contact information.
The minister of hospitality (or greeter) is a relatively new role for Catholics. As part of our efforts to build up the community of Saint Peter‑in‑Chains, under the direction of our pastor, the Cathedral will soon be asking our ushers to expand their role to include a hospitality ministry.
If you are interested in being a part of this ministry, please call the Cathedral Office to speak to Kathy for details.
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC) are properly formed, instructed, and commissioned male of female laypersons. These ministers are appointed for a given parish community to aid in the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass and to the sick and homebound when ordinary ministers of Holy Communion are unavailable.
If you are interested in becoming a Minister of Holy Communion, please speak to one of the priests after mass or contact one of our ministry leaders, below.
