Worship is not limited to personal prayer and glorification. Worship can include service to the parish and community with a spiritual/ministerial aspect.

They are many opportunities for you to worship at Gate of Heaven and Our Lady of Victory. You can take an active role in the worship community by participating at Mass as a Eucharistic Minister, Lector, Gift Bearer, Greeter or Altar Server. You can also worship by being involved in the Altar and Rosary Society, Knights of Columbus or Children’s Liturgy. If you have musical talent, try involvement in the Music Ministry.

Find out more about each ministry and how you can become an active member by calling Gate of Heaven at 570-675-2121 or Our Lady of Victory at 570-639-1535.
