The role of Sacristan is to prepare the necessary items for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as well as ensuring that the Church is unlocked and ready when parishioners arrive for worship. The sacristan attends to the supplies needed for Mass and all that needs to be done prior to Mass beginning. Sacristans are needed for both weekend and weekday masses. For more information regarding this vital ministry. Contact information: Larry Angyal at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Extraordinary Ministers (EMCs) have the great honor and privilege of assisting our clergy in the distribution of Holy Communion at mass. In addition, some of our EMCs take communion to the sick or shut-ins. Contact information: Barry Arnold (501) 834-8185 or by email at email@example.com.
Lectors read the Word of God at each mass and prepare through practice and reflection. Responsibilities include the first and second readings, occasionally the Responsorial Psalm, and The Prayers of the Faithful. If you were blessed with a warm smile, a loud clear voice, and a desire to vocalize the Word of God please consider the lector ministry.
The Usher Ministry is open to any registered parishioner who has been Virtus trained and has been properly trained in usher duties. You do not have to be Catholic to be an usher. Our ministry is tasked with keeping the church clean and orderly between Masses, making the various collections, choosing people to bring up the gifts and providing a hospitable and friendly greeting and seating assistance if needed.
Ushers will ensure any handicapped individuals will have Communion brought to them by an Extraordinary Minister of Communion.
Usher Coordinator: Chris Parker

Eucharistic Adoration is adoration of our loving Jesus in His Most Blessed Sacrament.
Come, sit, kneel, pray, relax, enjoy the sweet peace that comes from being with the One who loves you the most, Jesus, who waits for you in our Parish Adoration Chapel. Tell Him of your joys, your problems, your hopes and dreams. Listen. Jesus will speak to your heart. Adorers can drop in for a visit with Him, commit to spend an hour a week, or become a substitute. Jesus is there to greet you.

Our organization's purpose is to serve as a spiritual and social unit of the parish for women. We are divided into monthly working committees to supply the needs of the Sanctuary and Sacristy and to serve as hostesses for the monthly socials. We also assist with parish-wide functions such as Falcon Fest, the fall Soup Tasting fundraiser for Arts and Craft, Meals for the Diocesan House of Discernment, and an annual baby shower for either Birthright or the Arkansas Pregnancy Resource Center on a rotating basis. We have three primary committees that have taken on a life of their own but rely on our members to staff and support. One coordinates the parish wide funeral meals , another divides our members into montly committees to oversee altar care and all it entails. The third committee, the prayer shawl ministry, is described in more in the Evangelization Commission.
