Liturgical Ministry

Liturgical ministry is an excellent opportunity to fulfill your baptismal call of service to one another. Our liturgies should utilize the talents and gifts that God has given this community to the fullest extent. Whether participation is through “behind the scenes” preparation and planning or through a public role of service within the Mass, parishioner contributions help our liturgies to be truly life-giving celebrations. Please prayerfully consider joining one of these ministries.


 

Adult Choir

Also known as St. Patrick Adult Choir and is composed of dedicated and long time parishioners. The St. Patrick Adult Choir is not only involved in singing during church services but doubles up as a parish group engaged in supporting and participating in parish activities especially with the different parish organizations. The choir practices every Friday from 6:30pm to 7:30pm and sings at the 9:00 am Sunday mass.

Youth and Young Adult Ministry

Also known as St. Patrick’s Young Adult Choir (SPYCo). SPYCo started in 1995 as a youth choir and through the years developed into a Young Adult Ministry. Aside from singing during church services, SPYCo is also engaged in volunteer work at Laguna Honda Hospital, St. Anne’s Home, Soup Kitchen and Damayan Group in Bayanihan Center, South of Market.  For those interested in joining, please email us at SPYCo.Choir@gmail.com. Our choir practice is held every Friday @ 6 p.m. in the McKenna Room. Our choir schedule is as follows:

  • Every Sunday, English mass at 12:15 p.m. (except 1st Sunday)
  • 1st Sunday at 2 p.m. (Tagalog  Mass)

    Children's Choir

    Singing in a church choir affords children a way in which to experience the mass in a different way, one in which giving of themselves can bring a closer communion with God, the parish and with each other. In order to accomplish this, we must show our kids that singing is such a huge and integral part of our liturgy. Singers and musicians are needed. If you are interested, please contact the church office. 

    Lectors

    The objective of the Minister of the Word (lector) is not merely to be an interesting oral reader of the Bible, it is to provide effective proclamation of God's Word in Scripture. Effective proclamation of the Scriptures depends on the quality of how the lector prepares to minister to the congregation.  If you are interested, please contact the church office. 

    Eucharistic Ministers

     Eucharistic Ministers assist priests and deacons in the distribution of Holy Communion. They are trained and commissioned for a one-year term of service. If you are interested, please contact the church office. 

    Ministry to the Sick and Homebound

    At SPC we take our responsibility and duty to the parish community of the Home Bound, those in Care Centers and Hospitals and our catholic brothers and sisters that wish to receive pastoral care from our ministry, with compassion care and concern. Our mission is to faithfully be present to those in need of our support, prayers and most importantly to offer the Eucharist.  If you know someone who is home-bound or sick or if you are interested in participating in this ministry, please contact the church office. 

    Liturgical Arts and Environment Committee

    The Liturgical Arts and Environment Committee is designed to provide direct support for creating and maintaining an appropriate, reverent, and prayerful environment in the Sanctuary, Nave, and Narthex of the church. The committee utilizes the rubrics and documentation of the Church along with traditionally established norms and the seasonal traditions of the liturgical year. If you have an eye for interior design or the decorative arts and are interested in contributing to this ministry, please contact the church office.
