Worship

Altar Servers Needed:  Grade 5 and up. If you would like to get involved in ministry please speak to Deacon Chris.

Music Ministry:  Music ministers are needed for the Saturday 5:30 p.m., Sunday 9:00 and 11:30 a.m. Liturgies. The role of music minister implies a commitment to attend rehearsals and celebrations, some competency in playing an instrument and an ability to sing in tune. Ministers share musical skills both vocal and instrumental to lead the assembled community in sung prayer. If you are interested in this ministry please contact Deacon Chris Morash, the Director of Worship at deaconchris@incarnation.org or at the parish office (973-4381, ext. 102) or just speak with him following Liturgy.

Nursery:  Our free, professionally staffed nursery is available for childcare during the weekend Masses: Sunday at 9:00 a.m., and 11:30 a.m. and Sunday at 1:30 p.m. (Spanish Mass).

Wine Sunday:  Approximately four times per year, we ask each parish household to help replenish the supply of wine used at Masses, by donating a bottle of red wine. You may bring it when you come to Mass, or drop it off at the parish office through the week between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. We ask that you do not bring white, blush, or rosé wines. Thank you. You may also wish to offer a monetary donation for the purchase of sacramental wine. In that case you can make a check payable to the Church of the Incarnation re: Sacramental Wine.

The Parish accepts donations for the weekly flowers that adorn the altar and ambo in honor or memory of a loved one! The cost is $90.00. Your name or a “memorial” name will be printed in the bulletin as a “thank-you” for your donation. Flowers are needed for the following Sundays and feast days:
