Ministries

At St Bernadette's we value the gifts and talents of every individual and therefore encourage you to be involved in a ministry or to share your gifts and talents. The richness of our fellowship is something we value.

MUSIC

Let God's people sing praise!
The Music Ministry has been an integral part of Church life for many centuries. Our Music Ministry Team is comprised of many varied and talented people.

Please contact Allan Stock if you would like to join one of our choirs as a musician or singer, or if you want to begin your own musical group.

READERS

Reading the Word of God during Mass is a vital ministry. We have readers of all ages and we encourage people to join this ministry.

ACOLYTES

Acolytes assist the parish priest with the smooth running of the Mass.

EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS

Extraordinary Ministers perform the extraordinary service of sharing the presence of Christ with all who receive his Body and Blood. The Ministers assist the priest with the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass and also at the homes of those who are unable to attend our Masses. As prayer, reverence and dignity are necessary for this ministry; training is required and is available.

ALTAR SERVERS

If you have a child who has received their first Holy Communion and is interested in Altar Serving, it is a great way for them to be involved in the Mass. Training is provided to assist in the role.

CHILDREN'S LITURGY

Children of all ages are invited to join in with Children's Liturgy. Children up to 3 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or older sibling and the older children are welcome to come along up until they have completed their First Holy Communion. We are always looking for people who can help. The programme and all materials are provided for the helpers, so there is very little preparation time involved The commitment is less than 30 minutes a month.

Children's Liturgy is held during 9.00am Mass on the 1ST, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Sunday of each month (except School holidays).
