Liturgical Ministries

The composition of the Eucharistic assembly ideally represents and reflects the nature of the Church herself, which is hierarchically ordered. The very arrangement of the celebration in its various ministries shows that all the baptized have a place in the Church – women and men, young and old, people of every race and tongue. Through the active participation of the faithful and the variety of liturgical ministers in the Church, the Body of Christ is built up. ~ # 6 General Instruction of the Roman Missal
