It takes many hands and many hearts to hold a worship service. You are invited to join any of the following worship ministries.
Acolytes provide a wonderful opportunity to be directly involved in our worship here at St. Titus’. Anyone 8 years or older can be involved in the Patterson Acolyte Guild. Acolytes assist in worship by bearing the cross, lighting candles, participating in the procession and recession, and more. If you or your child are interested in serving as an acolyte, please see Mr. Lionell Parker, Mr. Vincent Quiett, or Rev. Stephanie.
The altar serves as an important focal point for our worship. The Altar Guild provides the invaluable service of preparing the sanctuary for service. They maintain and change the altar hangings with the season, prepare and set the altar, and help to make the sanctuaries beautiful and ready for worship. The Guild performs these duties for regular worship services, in addition to special services such as burials, weddings, or baptisms.
The choir adds beauty to our worship with their voices and musical talents. You do not need to be able to read music to join the choir. You just have to love to sing. See Susan Stedman.
Eucharistic Ministers are trained to bear the chalice during the Eucharist, and to assist the Celebrant during the celebration of the Eucharist. They are particularly visible and important ministers in our worship and at all of our special liturgies, such as Holy Week and other holidays. The role of the Eucharistic Minister is a special and intimate ministry: helping to feed the people of God with the Body and Blood of Christ.
The Word of God is a gift to all—that’s the main mission of the Lector ministry. The lectors read the biblical lessons in front of the congregation each week, in addition to the Prayers of the People. This ministry is ideal for those who enjoy reading, public speaking, or the beauty of the Word.
Ushers and Greeters
If you’ve ever been to a new church for the first time, you know that it isn’t always easy to find your way, or to know where to go or what to do. Our Ushers and Greeters help our worship services flow smoothly by greeting parishioners, helping them find seats, take communion, answer questions, or give directions
