MINISTRIES

In Christianity, Ministry is an activity carried out by Christians to express or spread their faith, the prototype being the Great Commission. 2003's Encyclopedia of Christianity defines it as "carrying forth Christ's mission in the world", indicating that it is "conferred on each Christian in baptism".

ALTAR SERVERS

The Altar Server Ministry provides an opportunity for those interested, young and otherwise, to serve and assist on the altar, on Sundays and Weekday Masses, Weddings and Funerals. Training sessions are held on Saturdays from 4.00 PM - 5.30 PM. All are welcome to join this ministry; the requirement is that First Holy Communion has been received.

LECTORS

This ministry is very important to the life of the Church. The lector proclaims God’s Living Word. After Vatican II the role of laity in church-related functions increased and the use of lectors in liturgy greatly expanded. Lectors proclaim the First and Second Readings. If you have a passion for Scripture and desire to proclaim the Word through the ministry of Lector at Holy Family, you would be most welcome to join the ministry.

USHERS

The Church Ushers greet parishioners as part of the hospitality before Mass. Ushers arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the beginning of Mass. Ushers are generally responsible for the seating of parishioners and visitors, taking up the collection, presentation of the gifts for Holy Communion, and the distribution of bulletins and materials at the conclusion of Mass. Ushers also control the church environment.

YOUTH MINISTRY

Youth ministry is the response of the Christian community to the needs of young people and the sharing of the unique gifts of youth with the larger community.Youth ministry is most commonly associated with ministry to and with youth. This includes the variety of ways that young people gather for shared ministry. Youth group meetings, socials, sporting events, youth retreats, youth service events, and special youth prayer services are examples of gathered ministries in the youth setting. Sometimes specialized programs are provided for small groups of young people.This Ministry works under the guidance of diocesan youth chaplain.

SJWWC

St Joseph Women Who Care (SJWWC)

Group collect a Corpus Fund through their monthly subscription which is used to reach out to the needy in whatever measure possible. The members visit the sick, distribute commodities to the needy, and books and schoolbags to the deserving 10th Class students. 

SPOUSE OF CHRIST

The primary objective of  Spouse of Christ Prayer Group  is to align Our will with God's will. As 1 John 5:14 tells us, "Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

Jesus taught His disciples to pray, "Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven" (Luke 11:2). True praying is not overcoming God's reluctance; it is laying hold of His willingness. Prayer is not getting your will in heaven; it is getting God's will on earth.
