Participate in the Life of St. James'

Serving during Worship

There are many opportunities to participate in worship services. Lay Eucharistic Ministers serve the chalice during communion; Lectors read from the Bible; Ushers greet and direct members and visitors; and the alter guild prepares the sacred vessels. Lay Eucharistic Visitors take communion to home-bound members.


Starting in fourth grade, Acolytes assist by carrying crosses and banners, ringing bells, and lighting candles.
