Visitors to the Ipswich Catholic Community regularly comment that we have vibrant Masses and beautiful liturgies. Some of our visitors are even previous students from our primary schools and secondary colleges and previous parishioners. They regularly comment that they wish they could participate in our community every week. This type of feedback means a lot to us.
Our community also has dozens of parishioners involved in liturgical ministry across each of our Mass Centres every weekend. They include altar servers, Eucharistic ministers, lectors, hospitality ministers, sacristans, music ministry, and many others. Every Sunday these parishioners help bring others to Christ through how we celebrate the Word of God and the Eucharist. Our uplifting Liturgies come from an understanding that all members of our community take their role as a member of the assembly seriously. As Christians, we are called to be Christ to others. We are called to be of service, and this attitude is required of us at liturgy.
We welcome everyone to help take part in our liturgy in a more active way. There are many ministries we have that help our liturgy come alive each week. We are sure there is one right for you. Please speak with us and we will assist you in determining what liturgical ministry you are called to. It is in giving that we receive. We can’t wait to hear from you!
