trusted with the Word of God

Become a Lector

Get Started

Lector

Thank you for your interest in being a lector at Little Flower Catholic Community. A Lector is any lay minister who reads from the Lectionary at Mass. In some locations a lector is called a reader.

In this ministry an individual is entrusted with the word of God–a tool sharper than any two–edged sword.

How it works

Proclaiming the Word

A good lector is a skilled craftsman who works at his or her ministry to proclaim the Word of God within the Liturgy of the Mass along with other liturgical events and celebrations within the parish community.​

Requirements

Fully Initiated Catholic

In accord with the teachings of the Church, a Lector must be a fully initiated Catholic. After consulting with the Pastor and after receiving training, any such layperson may serve in this ministry.​

Training

Prepared to proclaim

After consulting with the Pastor,  training to become a Lector can begin. To initiate this process, or to learn more, please email Deacon Tom Gordon. 

Assist at Mass

Become an Altar Server

Get Started

Altar Server

Thank you for your interest in becoming an Altar Server and assisting at Mass. As an Altar Server at Little Flower Catholic Church, you are a leader, a servant, and above all, an example of reverence to those in the pews.

The responsibility of being an altar server is great. Are you ready to begin? 

How it works

Proclaiming the Word

In the liturgy, you are much more than simple “helpers of the parish priest.” Above all, you are servers of Jesus Christ, of the eternal High Priest. Thus, you, altar servers, are called in particular to be young friends of Jesus.

Requirements

First Holy Communion

In accord with the teachings of the Church, to become an Altar Server you must have completed your first Holy Communion, be at least in the Third Grade, and be willing to be trained.

Training

Ready to serve

Even if you’ve never served before, we will work with you to train you on everything you need to know to become an Altar Server. To initiate this process, or to learn more, please email Kevin Wessa.

Extraordinary Minister

Become a Eucharistic Minister

Get Started

Eucharistic Minister

To begin, I want to thank you each for your willingness to serve our parish community as
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. 

The simple nobility of this ministry can be summed
up as bringing to the people of God the Presence (body, blood, soul, and divinity) of Jesus Christ
in the Eucharist.

This most august sacrament is the source and summit of our Christian life in this
earthly journey, and you are invited to participate in a particular way through this ministry.

Step TWo: Grow

Weekend Masses

"Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ." | St. Jerome

Every time Jesus encounters people in a profound way, He invites them to follow Him, to become His disciple. A disciple is one who has made an intentional choice to follow Jesus and grow to live more and more like Him. At Little Flower we encourage every member to join other Christians in building community, sharing faith, and ultimately growing in their discipleship.

Adoration

"Amen, I say to you, whatever you ddi for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me." | Matthew 25:40

We also offer Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from 7-8am Mon-Fri, before each of the weekday Masses with Morning Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours beginning at 7:45am. If you haven't ever prayed Morning Prayer, you can pick up the "Shorter Christian Prayer" book and join in or listen to this beautiful prayer silently. After Mass is the option to join in a communal praying of the Rosary.

Each Tuesday, the St. Ann chapel is open from 9am-9pm for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. This is a wonderful opportunity to pray silently before our Lord for comfort, strength, peace and direction and to present Him with your needs and intentions. Come experience the peace of God's presence in the midst of a busy world. 

All are invited to stop in the chapel at anytime, but this extended time of Adoration is made possible by individuals who have signed up to remain in prayer in the chapel for a specific hour each Tuesday. If you would like to sign up to dedicate an hour of time each Tuesday, please contact Jody Crowley at (850) 485-0533.
