LECTORS AND COMMENTATORS
Established in 1965, under the order of the Second Vatican Council, commentators and lectors were brought to existence to lead the congregation in a more active participation of the Mass. To join our team, please contact Fr. Waclaw at the Parish Office.
Parishioners were first invited to become Eucharistic Ministers on August 18, 1979. Today, we have 10 mandated Eucharistic Ministers serving our parish. If you would like to become a Eucharistic Minister, please speak with Fr. Waclaw.
The Ushers Club was formed in 1940 under the presidency of Mr. Walter Deptula. The Ushers’ loyalty prevailed throughout the years, even through the war years when we had a 2:30 am Mass to accommodate workers in government factories. If you’d like to join our Ushers Club, please contact Fr. Waclaw.
Altar boys have been serving St. Camillus since 1921 and girls have been invested in this role since 1996. They play an essential role in the celebration of the Holy Mass. Children who have had their First Communion and would like to become altar servers are encouraged to speak with Fr. Jacek.
The Adult English Choir has been serving the people of St. Camillus Parish for more than 70 years. Every important occasion of St. Camillus has been enhanced by the music the choir provides. To practice, the choir members meet each Sunday after the 9:00 AM Mass. To join the choir, please speak with our Music Director, Mr. Richard Sokas.
ST. VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY
The US chapter of this society was started on November 20, 1845, by a small group of caring men who met at the Cathedral in St. Louis, MO, to form the first conference in the United States. The Society helps the needy of our parish with clothing, boxes of food at Thanksgiving, and our sharing tree which provides Christmas gifts for families in our parish who are less fortunate than others. The Society remembers the ill at home and in hospitals, and also the deceased. Once a year, they sponsor a Mass of Anointing for all ill of our parish who are able to attend.
