Liturgical Ministries

We need many parishioners to serve at our Masses, and we are always seeking more to be involved in the Liturgical Ministries at Transfiguration.  Below are some of the ways that you can get involved.  Please contact the Parish Office at 651-738-2646 for more information, or email Shantel Schallenkamp to volunteer for a liturgical ministry.

Current Liturgical Ministers Schedule 

Transfiguration Altar Servers
Altar Servers

Altar Servers have the privilege of assisting the Priest at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. These young men and women carefully and diligently anticipate what is needed and act accordingly.

Anyone who has received his or her First Holy Communion is invited to serve in this beautiful way.


The Lector proclaims the Word of God to the congregation. He or she is charged with the task of proclaiming with dignity and reverence the Sacred Scripture.

Initial training and a yearly update are provided for all Lectors.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

The EMHC is commissioned to assist the Priest in distributing the Body and Blood of Christ to the faithful.

Individuals are asked to commit to a Mass time and are then scheduled to serve every third week.

Basic requirements: You must be a Confirmed, practicing Catholic in good standing with the Church.

Hospitality Ministers

“Do not neglect hospitality, for through it some have unknowingly entertained angels.”
-Hebrews 13:2

Transfiguration’s Hospitality Ministers are the first faces that parishioners and guests see when they walk through our doors. They take care of distributing Worship Aids, seating people in the Church, taking up the Collection, and distributing Bulletins after Mass.
