Lay Ministry

Ministry has often been used as a general term to designate service to others within the Church. The term “Minister” can be used to speak of clergy, religious or lay people.
Although laypeople have been closely linked to the Church’s mission and service from earliest times their ministerial role was renewed by Vatican II. These ministries include volunteer positions such as extraordinary minister, lector, catechist, acolyte, cantor and numerous others that laity partake in to participate fully in the daily life of the Church.
Lay Ministry also includes those who have a more professional role in the Church, such as Youth Minister, Director of Religious Education, and RCIA coordinator. The pages you will find under this drop down menu will provide a detailed description of the various ministries that are active in St. Stanislaus Parish. You are encouraged to contact the Rectory Office if you are interested in serving.
