Ministries and Groups

The life of our Lancaster Latin Mass Community continues to grow through organizations that enrich parish family life by providing opportunities to serve our parish, to grow stronger in our faith, and to get to know each other.  We invite you to be a part of these ministries and groups.

Altar Linen Care

Volunteers launder and iron smaller linens (purificators and corporals) weekly on a rotating basis.  If you are able to help clean altar linens for our Latin Mass, please contact Mary Ellen Gardner in the parish rectory at (717) 397-6921.


Our choir is open to members 14 yrs. and older in all sections with an ability to sing and a willingness to commit to sing Sundays and attend Wednesday evening rehearsals.  If you have an interest or know of someone who is interested in singing, please consider the Traditional Latin Mass choir.

All our singing is Ad maiorem Dei gloriam.

   “To the greater glory of God”
