Our Ministries

We have a very active volunteer base that helps our parish thrive on a daily basis. Our Altar Servers, Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, Choirs, and Ushers are always ready to serve our community to the best of their abilities. We are humbled and ever grateful for all that you do.

Altar Servers

The Altar Servers Coordinators are Jane Padillo and Rodel Padillo, who create the schedules usually a month or two in advance.

Boys and girls who have already completed their First Holy Communion are welcome to join. Full training is provided!

Please send an email to cosaltarservers@gmail.com for further information.

The COS Eucharistic Ministers are scheduled on a rotational basis by the Coordinator, Bridget Anderson.

As well as assisting the Pastor at the regular services, they assist in taking communion to the sick. Workshops are offered for the ministers, and we do require that ministers are prepared for their office through these.

Lectors

If you have a clear reading voice and feel you could contribute to the Lector team, contact the Coordinators, Janete Bloemen or Gabriella Mattiazo – van Velde via office@parish.nl.

Workshops are organised occasionally to help lectors improve and enhance their public speaking skills.

The Church Choirs are always more than happy to have new members.

Our Sunday morning Choir is directed by André Cruz (cos.mchoir@gmail.com) while the Sunday Evening Choir is led by Vivien Khouw (office@parish.nl).

Experienced choristers are very welcome, but even if you don’t read music, but enjoy singing, we would be very happy to have you come and join us!

Ushers

This group is an especially important ministry in our church, with its international and transient congregation.

The members are there to welcome people and to provide information to parishioners, both new and established. Also in our often very crowded church, they help people to find seats and generally assist in the logistics of organizing the services.

New volunteers are always very welcome. Contact Arthur Faulkner via office@parish.nl.
