Lay Ministries

The Grotto would not be able to carry out its ministries without the wonderful support from our lay liturgical ministers.

The Lay Ministry held its latest formation session on August 14. The topic for this formation was about the Liturgical Calendar. The event attended by 22 Ministers from different ministries. All of them had the opportunity to get to konw each other as this was the first time the Lay Ministry had assembled in person since the pandemic restrictions were lifted. With God’s grace the event was a success and this was followed by the Rosary and Mass at the Chapel of Mary.

We are currently seeking volunteers to join our group. If you are interested in learning more about opportunities as a liturgical minister at The Grotto, please contact Allan Sabroso at

“All the baptized need to understand that part of their duty regarding the Liturgy is to accept some responsibility for the Liturgy, to place themselves and their God-given talents at the service of the liturgical community whenever possible. Whether one brings up the gifts at the Presentation; reads the Word of God; assists with the distribution of Communion and brings the Eucharist to those unable to be present at Mass; serves at the altar; provides music that augments the joy, solemnity, and festivity of the celebration; or serves the assembled community as an usher, he or she is contributing to the worship of the community and fulfilling the responsibility that comes with Baptism.” – USCCB Liturgical Participation Article Copyright 2010
