Our acolytes perform a variety of duties, including carrying the cross in procession (crucifer), carrying the torches (torch bearers) and carrying the flags (flag bearers). They also assist the celebrant in preparing the Altar for the Eucharist (server).

All youth are encouraged to serve as acolytes. The acolytes are trained by the Acolyte Masters.

We are looking for acolytes of any age who would be willing to serve on those occasions when our regular (and faithful) acolytes are not available. Please contact Candi Glass (office@stmichaelsanniston.org) if you would interested in being trained to serve in this capacity.

Lay Eucharistic Ministers are confirmed members who administer the chalice during Sunday services. Training is required, as well as a license from the Bishop’s office. Our current LEMs are Lenn Costner, Jr., Bryan Cuneo, Florence Cuneo, Denise Dodd, Jim Stirling, Harry Ellis Telford and Roger Zeimet . Please contact Candi Glass at office@stmichaelsanniston.org for more information.

Lay Readers

Lay Readers particpate in the service by reading the lectionary selections and the Prayers of the People. If you are interested in participating, please contact the church office: (256) 237-4011 or e-mail office@stmichaelsanniston.org. We could always use more volunteers!
