The Gospel Procession: The Deacon reading the Gospel from the book held by the Sub-Deacon as the acolytes hold their torches.

Worship Assistants serve as Deacons, Sub-Deacons, Communion Assistants, Lectors, and Acolytes. Additional members for this lay ministry are always needed. Being part of the work (liturgy) of worship can be a moving and meaningful part of one’s worship experience.
