St. John Neumann Parish

Liturgical Ministries

St. John Neumann

”Liturgy” comes from the Greek word that means “work of the people.” In celebrating Mass, sacraments or prayer, everyone in attendance has work to do – to sing, to listen attentively when God’s Word is proclaimed, to respond, and to pray.

Liturgical ministers serve during our liturgical celebrations. Training is provided.

If you feel called to serve in one of these ministries call the Parish Office at 412-366-2020 ext. 10
