Liturgical Environment Ministry:
This ministry contributes to a prayerful and seasonally appropriate environment in the church through use of greenery, floral décor and other symbolic items to complement liturgical themes throughout the year. For more information call the Parish Office at (216) 421-2995.
Music Ministry: We, as a Christian Community with musical traditions, express and respond to God’s love in our midst. Throughout the Church year, as Ministers of Music we commit our time and talents to enrich the celebration of the Liturgy. It is our prayer that through music we share, engage and inspire all people to a renewed and ever deepening awareness of our union with Christ and one another. There are several choirs that vary according to musical talent and the content of prayers to be sung. The Holy Rosary Choir sings at 11:00 a.m. Mass on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month (rehearsals are Tuesdays at 6:00 p.m.). The Coro Italiano (SATB) sings every 2nd & 4th Sunday of the month at 8:00 p.m. Mass (rehearsals are Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m). Another option is the Scola--small ensembles of men and women. Cantors/Psalmists and instrumentalists are also welcome! For more information contact the Director of Ministries of Music at (216) 421-2995.
Ushers: The ushers are men and women of the parish who assist at masses and other parish events. Ushers are a welcoming presence at all masses, and are responsible for taking up the collection and distributing the weekly bulletin. Additionally, they promote a sacred environment for the liturgy by directing people to their seats as appropriate, and refrain from causing distraction during times of reverence and worship. To become an usher, please contact the Parish Office at (216) 421-2995.
