Art & Environment
Campus Ministry student leaders of Art & Environment are responsible for working with Moreau’s liturgist on thoughtful decoration of the school’s worship space in the Main Gym and the St. André chapel to reflect the various liturgical seasons and special school events. They care for this sacred space in a special way and seek to make them beautiful, prayerful, and inviting. Students with gifts for visual design or with an interest in creating prayerful environments are always needed.
Sacristans & Altar Servers
Sacristans serve as acolytes during liturgy, assisting the presider at the altar during Mass and helping to thoughtfully prepare the chapel and various liturgical supplies for worship. In both behind-the-scenes and particularly roles, these leaders ensure that everything runs smoothly during Mass and help create a prayerful environment for all.
Moreau’s faculty, staff and confirmed students serve as Eucharistic ministers to distribute the Eucharistic at Mass under both forms of the Body and Blood of Christ. Through their service, they strive to maintain a prayerful connection to the community and encourage the building of the Body of Christ at Moreau Catholic.
Students use their gift for music to enrich and enhance the worshiping life of Moreau. There are opportunities for developing one’s voice, prayer leadership, and developing a greater understanding of the liturgy and the role of liturgical music at Mass. Music Ministers just released Close to You, a CD of original songs and reflections reflective of the Holy Cross charism.
Student lectors serve as readers during liturgy, sharing their gifts for preaching through the proclamation of the Word and in leading communal prayers of petition.
Students involved in hospitality ministry are responsible for welcoming worshipers into the prayerful community and creating thoughtful preparations of the Campus Ministry space for social gatherings. Through gifts for building relationships and shaping environments in which all feel a sense of belonging, these leaders create a community where all are truly welcome and they embody the spirit of hospitality modeled by the Congregation of Holy Cross.
