Our committee oversees and promotes faith education in the Parish. At parish level, there are special Lenten discussion groups, occasional speakers and special activities throughout the year. The Liturgy committee is also involved in the preparation of our major liturgical seasons and celebrations. If you are interested in participating, please contact the parish office.
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion at Mass
The primary role of the Eucharistic Ministers is to assist with the distribution of communion at Mass. We need sufficient ministers at each Sunday Mass to assist with the distribution of both the Body and the Blood of the Lord.
The Proclamation of the Word is a key feature of the Mass. Our readers are rostered over a month to be of service at each of our Sunday Masses
Serving at Mass – Acolyte, Senior and Junior Servers Ministry
Our senior servers prepare for the celebration of a Sunday Mass and serve the liturgy. Junior servers assist during the celebration of Sunday Mass. Children are invited to become Altar Servers after their First Holy Communion
As we strive to have music at all our Sunday celebrations, we are always on the lookout for organists to form a roster. As well, we have many other celebrations that require an organist, particularly funerals and weddings, and other liturgical celebrations.
We have a number of fine singers who lead the congregation in singing at our Sunday celebrations of Mass. New cantors are always welcome. Cantors are also required for celebrations such as funerals and weddings and other liturgical events.
Children’s Choir – 1st & 3rd Sunday of the month at 10.00am Mass

Rock Mass - to be advised.
Children’s Liturgy Ministry
This liturgy, for primary school children, is celebrated every Sunday during the school term at the 10.00 am Mass. Children leave the Church after the entrance hymn. They pray, listen to Gospel readings for the Sunday and may use a worksheet relating to the reading. They return to the Church for the Offertory Procession and re-join their families. A roster of volunteer parents and others run the program for children attending this Sunday Mass during term time.
Altar Society Ministry
Members of the Altar Society contribute in a great variety of ways, working behind the scenes, attending to the needs of the Church Sacristy (washing, ironing), and keeping our beautiful sanctuary and church clean.
Floral Arrangers Ministry
Our beautiful sanctuary and our liturgical celebrations are enhanced by floral displays. Do you have flowers you can contribute? Might you be interested in joining a roster to ensure that our church enjoys the beauty of flowers? Your generosity and/or expertise would be most appreciated.
Altar Linen Ministry
This practical ministry entails laundering the linen which is used for distribution of Holy Communion. The ironed linen is folded in a correct manner. Responsibilities include collecting used linen from the Sacristy following 6pm Mass on Sunday evening and returning the laundered linen by the following weekend.
Welcoming and Hospitality Ministry
As we strive to be a community known for its welcome, this team of people welcomes those attending Corpus Christi for Mass and for worship. The team also arranges morning tea after the 10.00am Mass on Sunday mornings and after special liturgies.
Wardens are responsible for organising the collections at weekend Masses. You are put on a roster once every 8 weeks, during the Sunday Mass normally attended.
