Hospitality Ministers

embody the mission of St. John Bosco to foster a warm community that welcomes and values each person.  These volunteers greet the gathering assembly, assist with seating, take up the collection, distribute worship aids and bulletins, and straighten up the church for the next celebration.

Eucharistic Ministers

by assisting the priest in distributing Holy Communion to the assembly, nourish the assembly with the gifts from the sacred table.  This ministry is open to all Catholics who have been fully initiated with the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation.


bring God’s Word to life at Mass, as they proclaim the Scriptures and lead the Prayers of the Faithful.  They devote time to preparing and reflecting on the readings in advance, so that they may be proclaimed with familiarity, reverence and love.

Mass Coordinators

are experienced liturgical ministers entrusted with coordinating the many volunteers who assist at a particular Liturgy.  They check-in volunteers at the usher’s closet, identify members to bring up the gifts, facilitate the collection, and work with the Liturgical Coordinator and Sacristans to ensure the Liturgy runs smoothly. 

Altar Servers

are fourth graders through high school. They perform tasks such as lighting candles, preparing the altar, and holding the New Roman Missil.

Why Catholic?

The word "Catholic" is derived from a Greek word, Katholikos, originally meaning universal. In the early days of the Church, many Roman citizens referred to this new upstart religion that followed the "Ways" of Jesus Christ as being Catholic--it was universal throughout the empire--meaning that members of this new religion could be found almost anywhere throughout the empire. As time went on, this particular word began to be recognized and used in describing this new religion. Among members, of course, the word had a much more significant and broader meaning than just geographical consideration. It was understood also to describe the very nature of the Church, in that it was universally for everyone. There was no exclusion according to nationality, race, economic or social status. It is for all the people of God. The word "Catholic" was and is also applied to the teaching and the faith of the Church and , in this sense, it means what is believed by the whole Church. It is universally united in its worship, in what it teaches. There are no divisions or branches within its membership. And finally, the word "Catholic"has also come to be used to describe individual Christians who profess belief in the Church's universal teachings and practices. "Credit - Lake Charles Diocese"
