VINCENT DE PAUL
SSVP is a charitable organization of lay persons,in a spirit of love, justice and charity.
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul began in Paris, France, in 1833 when a young law student at the Sorbonne, Frédéric Ozanam, was challenged during a debate to demonstrate what he and his fellow Catholic students were personally doing to help the poor in Paris. Ozanam's reaction was immediate. Within weeks, Ozanam, at 20 years of age, and six of his peers formed the first "Conference of Charity." Under the conference, this group of seven men financed their works of charity out of their own pockets and from contributions of friends. They visited the poor in their homes, providing them with needed aid and assistance.
KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
The Knights was formed to render financial aid to members and their families.
OUR HISTORY AND HERITAGE
Founded on the principles of charity, unity and fraternity, the Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary's Church in New Haven, Conn., and a group of parishioners. Their intent? To bring financial aid and assistance to the sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Today, Father McGivney is being considered for sainthood.
A LEGACY OF FAITH & SERVICE
Founded by a young parish priest now on the path to sainthood, the Knights of Columbus has helped strengthen men, their families,
The Ministers distribute Holy Communion, either within Mass or taking it to the sick.
The role of the Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion is extremely important during the celebration of the Eucharist. The USCCB has instituted strict requirements of individuals who are commissioned to this very important liturgical role. As one is called to serve, this ministry requires you to grow in confidence, dexterity, agility, and most of all, reverence in handling the sacred species of the consecrated Body and Blood of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Extraordinary ministers are hand-picked by the priest and lay minister assigned to coordinate the ministry.
The altar servers are assistants to a member of the clergy during a Christian liturgy.
Although institution into the ministry of acolyte is reserved to lay men, the diocesan bishop may permit the liturgical functions of the instituted acolyte to be carried out by altar servers, men and women, boys and girls. Such persons may carry out all the functions listed in no. 100 (with the exception of the distribution of Holy Communion) and nos. 187 - 190 and no. 193 of the General Instruction of the Roman Missal.
The determination that women and girls may function as servers in the liturgy should be made by the bishop on the diocesan level so that there might be a uniform diocesan policy.
