Eucharistic Ministers

The Church provides for the use of extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist. The term "extraordinary" is used because the ordinary minister is the priest or deacon. In order for the celebration of the Mass to proceed in a timely and orderly manner, Eucharistic ministers assist with the distribution of both the Eucharistic bread and cup. Service in this ministry is by invitation and appointment of the pastor. Some Eucharistic ministers also are trained to bring communion to shut-ins and the infirm.

Music Ministries

Holy Spirit Music Program
Holy Spirit Parish has developed a community-based music ministry featuring singers and musicians of all ages. The parish has a youth choir for fifth-through eighth-graders, an adult choir of men and women, and a guitar ensemble with mixed ages. These groups, along with our regular cantors and accompanists, provide music at all Masses and special services throughout the year.

The parish encourages and welcomes those with musical gifts to become involved in this ministry for more information, please contact the individual choir directors (see below), or Rachel Songer, who coordinates the overall music program for the parish.

If interested please contact Rachel Songer through the rectory at office@hs-sacramento.org or (916)443-5442.

Holy Spirit Adult Choir
Our adult choir sings at the 9:30 Mass on the 2nd & 4th Sundays of the month. We practice on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 – 8:30 at the church. You do not need to have previous choral experience to join, just the time to make Masses and rehearsals. This is a friendly group of parishioners. There is usually at least one or two who are not Catholic, which is fine. We welcome anyone who at least can carry a tune!

For more information, call Nina at: (916)447-4648 or email at ninavigil@mac.com

Holy Spirit Parish Youth Choir Program
We invite young people grades 4 through 8 to become part of the Holy Spirit Music Ministry by singing in the Youth Choir. We sing on the 3rd Sunday at 9:30 Mass, and by special arrangement. The selections are usually more challenging and we learn the process of music liturgy planning. We practice on Thursdays from 3:45 - 4:30 in the Holy Spirit Parish School Fr. Brady room.

For more information, call Nina at: (916)447-4648 or email at ninavigil@mac.com
