Worship Participant Brochure

Volunteers are essential to worship experiences at Holy Cross. The tasks are easy and fulfilling. Mentorship is available for any worship volunteer position in which you may have an interest.

You may volunteer to help as a Greeter, Reader, Communion Assistant, Assistant Minister, Usher, or help with Altar Care. Children in grades 6 - 8 may serve as acolytes. It is a great feeling to know that you participated in the church service while showing your love for God and our church family. Learn more about these tasks in the Worship Participants Brochure


Contact the church office at or (847) 367-4060 to be added to our list of worship volunteers. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
