Basilica Choir Ministry
The Mission Dolores Basilica Choir is a dedicated volunteer group of mixed voices under the direction of Jerome Lenk. The Choir provides musical support for the liturgical life of the Parish community, and can be heard regularly at the 10 a.m. Sunday liturgies, as well as major feasts and holy days. In addition to singing for regular weekend liturgies, the Choir performs critically acclaimed annual Christmas concerts as well as a Spring Concert, and on occasion, a Spring Cabaret. The music they perform is comprised of selections that range from Renaissance music and Chant, to Gospel and Spirituals.??
Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion assist at Mass by helping to distribute the Body and Blood of Christ to the communicants. These ministers also receive the privilege of bearing the Body of Christ to the homebound and the sick. Volunteers are welcome. Please inquire about training for this ministry.

The Lectors proclaim the First and Second Readings from the Ambo (Pulpit) at Mass and read the General Intercessions of the community. They form part of the procession and, in the absence of a Deacon, carry the Book of the Gospels. We welcome new participants. Training is available.
Ushers & Greeters
Provide service at Saturday evenings and Sunday Masses by distributing parish bulletins, seating those requiring special help, and passing the collection basket. Volunteers are most welcome.
