Liturgical Service Opportunities

Opportunities are available for parishioners interested in participating in liturgical ministries such as serving as an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharistic, Lector, Usher, Choir Member or Greeter at Mass, Children’s Liturgy of the Word Catechist or Escort, and carrying the Gifts in the Offertory Procession. 

Adult Funeral Altar Servers
We are beginning a new ministry in the parish for adult funeral altar servers. If you are retired or free during the week and/or  Saturdays, please consider serving Mass at funerals. Funerals are usually at 11am, a couple of times a week and only require about 1 hour of commitment a few times a month.  There will be training provided and we look forward to starting this new ministry by the summer. If you are interested, please contact the Parish Center at 215.855.3133 or ststans@comcast.net.

Our young people in grades 4 to 8 in St. Stanislaus Parish School or PREP program are invited to serve in this ministry. Contact the Parish Center, 215.855.3133. – suspended due to covid-19

Offertory Gift Bearers – suspended due to covid-19
Would you like to participate in the celebration of Mass in a more active way?

This could be an opportunity for you to mark a special event or anniversary while participating in Mass in a deeper way. Sign up online at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A0F4EA8A62FA75-offertory.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word – suspended due to covid-19
Children’s Liturgy of the Word is offered during the 11 am Mass Sundays September through June. At this Mass, the Celebrant will ask all children in Kindergarten through 2nd grade who wish to hear the week’s Readings and an age-appropriate homily to accompany a Children’s Catechist. The catechist, escorts and children will leave the Church and move to the Parish Center for this special program. The children will be brought back to Church after the priest’s homily and rejoin the congregation at the beginning of the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Children’s Liturgy of the Word offers the children a deeper appreciation for the Mass and God’s Word. For further information about this program, please contact the Parish Center.

Music Ministry
Many musical opportunities exist at St. Stanislaus, and there is always room for more musicians and singers, including cantors. Please visit the “Music Ministry” tab on the home page for all the details.

Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist
These men and women assist in the distribution of the Eucharist at the Masses on Sunday, and also bring the Eucharist weekly to the home bound and those in nursing homes. For more information contact Deacon Tony Bellitto at the Parish Center.
