Parish Mission Statement
Nourished by the Word and Eucharist, we, the members of Our Mother of Consolation Parish, strive to create a vital, welcoming Catholic faith community that embraces each person. Acknowledging our blessings and supporting one another, we humbly serve the needs of God’s people and work to be the presence of Christ in our world.
The Ministry of Acolyte
On Saturday, May 7th, our parishioner, Christopher Roberts petitioned for and received the Ministry of Acolyte as his next step in his formation for the Order of Deacon. The ministry of Acolyte is one of four formal, liturgical steps toward diaconate ordination: Rite of Candidacy, Ministry of Lector, Ministry of Acolyte & Rite of Ordination. As an acolyte, Chris is instituted to serve at the altar and to assist the priest and deacon. In particular, it is his responsibility to prepare the altar and the sacred vessels and, if it is necessary, serve as an extraordinary minister and distribute the Eucharist. Let us continue to support Chris, Hannah and their children through our prayers.
