Summer vacation is over. The school year has begun. How do the armchair liturgists bolster the ranks of lectors, communion ministers, singers, musicians, artists, sacristans, altar servers, greeters, ushers, planners, bread bakers, vintners, masters of ceremony, seamsters, launderers, altar care folks, homily prep team, committee members, and others?
What are your options? Ministry fairs, bulletin announcements, Mass announcements, one-on-one, the pastor, sign-up forms, the internet, direct mail, phone calls, school or RE bulletins, or nothing at all?
