Worship Ministries

Altar Servers
Altar Servers are an important part of liturgical ministry through their participation and assistance during the Mass. They assist by preparing the altar and acting as a server. Children in grades 5 through 8 are invited to be trained to serve at Mass and other liturgical events. Please contact Heather Skinner at hskinner@themadeleine.com for more information.

Art & Environment
Help decorate the church for the different liturgical seasons and feasts. For more information, please leave a message for Lourdes Guzman at the Parish Office (526.4811).

Extraordinary (Eucharistic) Ministers at Mass
Extraordinary Ministers help prepare for the Eucharistic celebration and distribute the Body and Blood of Christ to the gathered assembly during the Communion Rite.  Please contact the Parish Office at 526.4811 if you would like to become a Eucharistic Minister.

Lectors (Readers) at Mass
Readers are lay Catholics in good standing who proclaim the Word of God during the liturgy, for “when the Scriptures are read in the Church, God himself is speaking to his people” (GIRM, 29).  Please contact Laura Morland at LMorland@gmail.com if you are interested in joining this ministry.

We are currently seeking new youth Lectors aged 16 – 20 (but exceptions can be made for someone slightly younger with good public speaking skills).

Music Ministry
Share in the joy of lending your voice to the Sunday morning liturgies.  St. Mary Magdalen has two choirs: the 9:30 a.m. “Contemporary/Family” Mass Choir, and the 11:00 a.m. concert choir, known as the “Schola Magdalene.” For more information, please contact Andy Canepa,the Music Director, at acanepa@marymagdalen.org.

The primary ministry of an usher is to the parish community, helping to maintain a prayerful atmosphere during the liturgy. Ushers assist parishioners in finding their seats, take up the collection, and direct the communion procession.
