“Martha, the ministry’s namesake, is the sister of Mary and Lazarus. In the biblical reference, she is doing something practical.”
(Luke 10:40, John 11:20, 28, and 39: 12:2)
The Martha’s Ministry of Saint Gregory the Great is dedicated to supporting the upkeep of the church environment where the faith community come together to worship. This ministry plays an essential role in the preparation of our liturgies. Among the responsibilities are cleaning and purifying the sacred vessels used during Mass, changing altar candles, and maintaining inventories of bread and wine.
