Liturgical Ministries

Altar Servers
Serving on the altar is just one way to serve the Lord. The two main duties of a server are to assist the priest and deacon during the celebration of Mass and help the people pray by your example.

All new servers must attend new server training, and additional training when new procedures are put in place.  If interested contact the parish office at 719.687.9345

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion distribute Eucharist to parishioners present at Liturgy and those who are sick and homebound, in hospitals or nursing homes. EMHCs are properly formed, instructed and commissioned lay persons. EMHCs may be male or female. However, they must be at least 16 years old.

Ministers need to participate in a preparatory class. If interested, please contact the parish office at 719.687.9345

Hospitality Ministers

A Greeter’s role during the liturgy celebration is important. They are the first people parishioners encounter when attending a Liturgy celebration at any given time. Greeters open doors, help the elderly in seating arrangements, guide parishioners during the liturgy celebration, and direct parents with young children to the appropriate areas.

Greeters serve the community and worship assembly with joy, dependability, kindness and reverence. They prepare the congregation for an uplifting participation in the sacred liturgy by welcoming them with open heart.

If interested, contact the parish office at 719.687.9345


Readers proclaim the Word of God at weekday and weekend Masses, with the exception of the Gospel, in an intelligent and respectful manner. They also announce the Prayers of the Faithful. During weekday Masses, they may also read the Responsorial Psalm between readings.

If interested in this ministry please contact Dave Luplow at 719.687.5717 or Steve Legarski at


The role of the sacristan includes all preparations for the celebration–such as placement of linens, chalices, hosts, water and wine. This ministry provides for the preparation of liturgical celebrations, including all that is needed to celebrate special days.

Anyone interested in becoming a sacristan should contact the parish office at 719.687.9345

St. Cecilia Music Ministry

Thank you for exploring the possibility of sharing your God Given musical gifts to serve in the Music Ministry.

Our Role…
…is to aid the gathered assembly in full and active participation of the liturgy.

Our Mission…
… is to cooperate with the teaching of the Church, our pastor, and the Holy Spirit to allow our God-given talents to be used effectively to enhance liturgy through inspirational song and music, offered in a liturgically appropriate and cooperative manner. Participation in Teller County Catholic Community music ministry is based upon talent, attitude, commitment, potential, and a heart for liturgy, but not necessarily in that order. It is a privilege to be in music ministry, not necessarily a right. Music ministry does not exist for its own sake, but for the good of the liturgy.
