EMC: Extraordinary Ministers of Communion are adult lay ministers whose role is to assist the priest in distribution of Communion during Liturgy. Training is required and is offered on an as-needed basis. Seven EMC's are scheduled for each of the Liturgies at 5:00 p.m., 9:00 a.m, and 11:30 a.m.  An additional two ministers are scheduled for the 9:00 a.m. Sunday Liturgy in order to take Communion to the traditional choir in the choir loft.

Lector: Lectors are lay ministers called upon to proclaim God's Word as written in the scriptures of the first and second readings at weekend liturgies. Some of the attributes looked for in a lector are: love of Scripture evidenced by daily reading of God's Word; willingness to be trained to improve the skills demanded by effective lectoring; a strong voice capable of projecting the length of St. Agnes church; excellent diction and understanding of the reading(s) to be proclaimed. Two lectors are scheduled for each Liturgy. The lector assigned to the first reading processes in with the Lectionary. Workbooks are available at the Parish House and lectors are expected to spend time preparing for their scheduled reading.

NOTE: The schedule for EMC's and Lectors generally runs for 16 weeks and both are scheduled according to your individual Mass preference. Ministers are scheduled, on average, one or two times during each 16-week rotation.
