Liturgical Ministries

Lectors

Members of the Catholic community share the story of salvation by proclaiming the scriptures to their brothers and sisters. Campus Ministry offers training for all those interested in serving in this way. Email ministry rep Susan Pedrotti for more information.

Eucharistic Ministers

The Catholic community celebrates together, sharing the Body and Blood of Christ as one. Perhaps you would be interested joining those who serve the community as a Eucharistic Minister. Campus Ministry offers training for all those interested in serving in this way. Email ministry rep Jackie Thomas for more information.

Music Ministry

As St. Augustine says, "Those who sing pray twice." The Fisher Catholic community's Sunday celebrations are enriched by the fine singing of all those assembled. We invite you to consider participating in leading the music as a singer or instrumentalist. For more information contact, Deacon Tom.

Sacraments

Penance [Reconciliation]

Campus Ministry offers two communal celebrations to receive the sacrament: 1) Advent Reconciliation; 2) Lenten Reconciliation. Individual confession precedes each of these communal events and is available by mutually convenient appointment with Fr. Joe or any of the Basilian/Diocesan priests on campus.

Anointing of the Sick

Sacramental anointing is "a part of the prayer of the Church and an encounter with the Lord" for those "whose health is seriously impaired by sickness." This sacrament is available by mutually convenient appointment with Fr. Joe or any of the Basilian/Diocesan priests on campus.

Marriage

Those with questions regarding the Rite of Marriage should contact Fr. Joe, Deacon Tom or any of the Basilian/Diocesan priests on campus. This contact should be made prior to selection of a date or church location.

Becoming Catholic

Children: (Anyone UNDER the age of 7)

Parents who desire to have their children baptized AT MASS should contact the Office of Campus Ministry to schedule. Those who desire to have the baptism take place OUTSIDE MASS should contact directly: Fr. Joe, Deacon Tom or any of the Basilian/Diocesan priests on campus.

  • A Roman Catholic who has been Baptized and received First Communion but has not been Confirmed
