The Shrine

Liturgical Ministries

Altar Servers

Boys and Girls (4th grade and up) as well as adults assist in our various liturgies, especially weekend masses.


The primary responsibility of the Sacristan is to set-up for Mass and takes charge of a variety of pre-Mass details.

Altar Server Coordinator(s)

These individuals are responsible for the recruitment and training of altar servers.


The Eucharistic liturgy is the pinnacle of Catholic worship, and the central celebration of The Shrine of The Sacred Heart.  Therefore The Shrine of The Sacred Heart places highest emphasis on Liturgical ministry and its component musical element. Music soothes, excites, challenges and unites us in ways in which words alone cannot.  Through our hymns and acclamations, the singing of our choirs, and the sounds of our instruments, music enables us to touch the deepest mysteries of God as we unite together in prayer.


Pastoral Care Ministers

Pastoral Care Ministers visit the sick and homebound.  The Eucharist is taken regularly to Sinai Hospital.  If you are interested in becoming a pastoral care minister, contact Stephen Cox at
