- Altar Servers and Mass Coordinators
An altar server assists the priest or deacon at Mass by preparing the
altar and acting as server during Mass. Mass Coordinators (working with
the Sacristan) are experienced altar servers who take on the
responsibility for setting up the furniture and vessels before Mass.
They store everything away after Mass. We provide initial and ongoing
training to our altar servers. Contact Michelle Janik at (607) 748-0442.
Training sessions for those interested in being commissioned as
lectors are held twice annually. Lectors are scheduled for Masses as
needed and have occasional days of reflection. If you would like to be
notified of the next training session, please contact Lisa Charsky at (607) 754-1907.
- Eucharistic Ministers for Masses
The ministry of Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion (EMHC)
is a fulfilling one for parishioners who wish to serve their community.
It makes few demands on your time beyond a planned attendance at Mass.
There is a brief training session and occasional refresher sessions.
Contact the parish office at (607) 748-0442.
- Eucharistic Ministers for Hospitals and Home-bound
Description: Our ministers take the Eucharist to sick people in
the hospital, to the elderly, or disabled in their homes or in
convalescent homes. We ask people to be available during the weekday or
on weekends. Ministers must be practicing Catholics and be comfortable
around sick or elderly people. This rewarding ministry helps people pray
together and reach out as Jesus did. Contact Lisa Charsky at (607) 754-1907.
At Saturday Vigil, Sunday and Holy Day Masses ushers are needed to greet
and seat parishioners, take up the collection, coordinate the
congregation during Communion and help tidy up after Mass. This ministry
is a wonderful way to participate and to get to know the parishioners
at the Mass that you attend. For more information contact the parish office at (607) 748-0442.
- Music Ministries
Under the direction of Timothy Wetherbee,
this choir leads the music for the 11 a.m. Mass, on major feast days, and other
special liturgies. The choir prepares music for worship from
the full spectrum of liturgical music including Chant,
traditional hymns and contemporary music. The rehearsal for this choir is on Thursday evening from 6:30 pm to 8 pm in the church and is open to anyone in the ninth grade or older. You don't need to have previous experience singing in a choir but you should be able to "carry a tune". New members are
welcome and are invited to contact Timothy Wetherbee at (607) 748-3577.
- The Contemporary Choir
This group of musicians, under the direction of Rose Roberts and Nino Samiani, specializes in leading recently composed music for choir and instruments at the Saturday 4pm Mass once a month and sometimes joins with the Traditional Choir for special Masses. Here
you will find a combination of guitar, drum, acoustic bass, piano and
solo saxophone alongside a group of fine singers. Contact Rose Roberts for more
information at (607) 748-5921.
- Children’s Choir
The purpose of this choir is to enhance the worship experience for
young children through the joy of music. Children will experience
vocally appropriate sacred music, proper singing techniques, and have
the opportunity to be part of the Liturgy during the 11 a.m. Mass
periodically throughout the year and on Christmas Eve. The choir is currently open to
children in Kindergarten through eighth grade. Participation in the
choir requires attendance at rehearsals on Sunday morning at 8:45 am in the School Gym. Emphasis will be placed on the
child’s worship experience and the joy that music brings to the Liturgy.
No prior music experience is required to join. If you are interested in
participating in the choir, please contact Ann Woodard at (607)
- Altar Rosary Society
Members of this society have a special devotion to the Blessed
Virgin Mary. They lead and recite the rosary with the community every
week. They also have a special calling to maintaining the worshipping
space by keeping it clean. They pick up the soiled altar linens each
week, launder, iron and then return them to the church. They maintain
all the liturgical vessels and vestments on a regular schedule of every 4
to 6 weeks.
