Day of Reflection for Liturgical Ministers
In continued promotion of the National Eucharist Revival, the Diocese of Gaylord invites those involved in liturgical ministries to attend a Day of Reflection for Liturgical Ministers on Saturday, November 4, 2023. Anyone who volunteers as an altar server, worship space decorator, Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, lector, musician, sacristan, usher, greeter, or is a member of their parish worship commission is invited to attend. Registration is free but free-will donations will be accepted at the door.
To learn more and to register, please go to the Day of Reflection for Liturgical Ministers event page.
Parish Point Persons
“Parish Point Persons have an essential role in connecting people in the pews with this national Revival movement! These volunteers work with their pastors to discern how their parish will respond to the National Eucharistic Revival. Then, they will work with other volunteers from their parish to lead activities and initiatives in response to the four invitations of this exciting movement.
“Ask Jesus how you can be an instrument of Revival in your parish. Perhaps he is calling you to take on this important role. Your ministry as a Parish Point Person will create fertile ground for the Holy Spirit to ignite Eucharistic faith in your community!”
