Ministries of the Cathedral

Altar Servers
All young boys ages eight and up are encouraged to assist the Priest at the Altar during Mass. Training is offered periodically throughout the year. For inquiry, please call the Cathedral Office at 718-624-7228.
Cathedral Choir
The Cathedral Choir (adult singers) consists of members of the parish who wish to donate their time and talent to the musical enrichment of the liturgy. The choir sings most major liturgies from the first Sunday of September through the last Sunday of June. Auditions are not required, but interest should be expressed to Ms. Christiane Merhej. The ability to read Arabic/Syriac is not required. A Junior Choir is in the process of formation for children from age 8 through 16. Look for future notices.
The Word of God is an essential part of our daily worship. Lectors are trained at various times during the year (to be announced) in both English and Arabic. If you are interested in serving in this ministry, please contact the Cathedral Office at 718-624-7228.
The Ministry of Hospitality is an important element in welcoming the faithful to the Table of the Lord. The Knights of Saint Maron, our men's organization, serve as our head ushers. Women and youth of the parish play an active role in ushering at special liturgies and events throughout the year. If interested, please contact the Cathedral Office at 718-624-7228.
The beauty and order of our historic Cathedral is maintained by the love and care of those who attend the altar by cleaning, decorating, and setting up the appointment of the various Feasts and Sacraments. Work as a Sacristan is open to all woman and men who feel called to this type of Ministry.  Please call the Cathedral Office for additional information.
