Liturgical Ministries

 

 Altar Serving
 

A ministry where children can make a meaningful contributions at Mass by assisting the priest.  This is the only ministry designed especially for children.  It is a great opportunity for them to be "up close and personal" and learn about the different parts of the Mass and know that they are providing a service to the church community.  If you feel you are being called please contact Josie Harloe at (714)609-8142

 Sunday Greeters
 

Greeters are the friendly face of Saint Columban Church standing at the doors of the church at each Mass to say Hello, offer a smile and give a warm welcome to all who come and worship.  You'll get to know people who attend regularly and you might also be the one who helps lift the spirit of the first-time visitor or the lonely stranger.  If you feel you are being called please contact Sister Bernadette at (714)867-1513.

 Usher Ministry
 

Ushers are parishioners who assist the priests in welcoming people who come to Mass.  Our ushers request volunteers to bring the gifts of bread and wine forward at the Offertory. They also find seats for people as they arrive for Mass and coordinate the collection of the Sunday offering.  During Communion, the Ushers assist the parishioners as they process to receive the Eucharist.  They also hand out the weekly bulletin after Mass.  If you feel you are being called please contact Adan Flores at (714)876-5649.
