About Liturgical Ministry

The Sunday liturgy brings the hope of resurrection into our lives. It is where Jesus reaches out and touches us. No matter what sorrow or pain we may be struggling with, no matter how difficult we may find life or how overwhelmed we may be, the Eucharistic presence of the Risen Christ can touch us profoundly and intimately.

This is the gift and teaching of the Catholic faith. That Jesus Christ is present to us during Mass through God’s word proclaimed in Sacred Scripture, through His people assembled to worship, in the priest who presides and, most uniquely, in the Eucharist we share — Christ’s body, blood, soul and divinity. Jesus showers us with graces and blessings at Mass, which brings healing to our bodies as well as our souls.

The gift and mystery of the Eucharist is that Jesus thirsts for our love and nourishes us with Himself so that we can go out and feed a world starving for the love of Christ.

Take part in the Liturgical Ministry.

St. Wenceslaus relies on our parishioner volunteers to bring about the prayerful celebration of the liturgy. Those who serve in the liturgical ministries of our Church come from the gathered faithful to minister to and with them. Liturgical ministers are men, women, young adults, high school youth and children.
