Who We Are

Want to play a key role in helping the Georgia Tech community celebrate the liturgy? Want to keep on serving for the mass like you did in your home parish? Want something to do on a Sunday? Sign up for a server position! We are always looking for more people to volunteer. Training is very quick and usually through personal appointment. Become an Usher and be the welcoming face that invites fellow students and Catholics from around the Atlanta area into mass. Become a Lector and proclaim the living Scripture in the Liturgy of the Word. Become an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, and administer Christ himself to the people.  Train as an Altar Server, serving a vital role in the execution of the mass and immersing yourself in participation with the liturgy. Please prayerfully consider serving the Catholic Center in a liturgy position. If you are interested please contact me, Jake Weitzel at liturgy@gtcatholic.org

Current Program Offerings

Adoration

The Georgia Tech Catholic Center is able to offer adoration throughout the week with a break for Mass/Communion Service at 5 pm each day. Those times are Monday 9 am – 8pm in the Main Chapel, and Tuesday through Friday from 8am – 8pm in the adoration chapel. This amazing service allows students the opportunity to visit Jesus Christ whenever time may be available in their schedule. If you would like to sign up for a weekly Holy Hour in which you can help us provide this opportunity again please contact me, Jake Weitzel at liturgy@gtcatholic.org

The Liturgy Pillar supports the Catholic Center by facilitating students’ growth through encounters with God primarily in the Mass and the Sacraments. In particular, the pillar includes the following:

  • Liturgy Servers
  • Music Ministry
  • Adoration Team
  • Special Liturgical Event Planning/Organization
  • Sanctuary Upkeep
Liturgy Servers

Under the umbrella of our liturgy servers are the following roles which are all filled by students:

  • Altar Servers
  • Lectors
  • Ushers/Greeters
  • Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
  • Mass Captains
  • Sacristans

The Mass Captains take “ownership” of a particular Sunday Mass, ensuring that we have all server positions filled for the Mass and supporting the Chaplain before Mass as necessary. The Sacristans are responsible for ensuring that the behind the scenes details are handled.

Music Ministry

Beauty is central to Christianity and music is an integral part of that. Headed by a music ministry coordinator, this group assists with music at each of our Sunday and special Masses through voice and instrument. Each Mass has a student leader who coordinates weekly practices with the vocalists and musicians.

Adoration Team

Adoration is a time and place of prayer and encounter with Jesus Christ. We are very blessed to have many opportunities to adore Jesus exposed in the Blessed Sacrament at the Catholic Center. Headed by an adoration coordinator, the adoration team consists both of those faithful adorers who make extensive hours of Eucharistic Adoration possible here at the Catholic Center and those students who take a more active role helping to coordinate the adoration schedule.

How To Get Involved

  • At the beginning of each semester, we’ll ask for sign-ups for all server positions and coordinate trainings for those interested. If you think you’ve missed your window of opportunity to sign up after we’ve finished training, think again! We’d love to add you to the team, and we’re able to train servers on a one-on-one basis, as necessary.
  • Music ministry is ALWAYS looking for more voices and talent – just talk to one of the current members of the music ministry to find out when rehearsals are!
  • Adoration is also ALWAYS open to anyone – just show up to the Adoration Chapel and spend some time with Jesus. If you’re interested in getting onto our weekly Adoration schedule as a general adorer, there are always signup forms right outside the Adoration Chapel.
  • Many of the coordination-type roles require an application to the CSO board that usually happens at the end of the fall and spring, but feel free to contact or approach any of the current leaders to find out more about what they do.

 

And finally, with all of these things, feel free to chat with or email the current Liturgy Chair (liturgy@gtcatholic.org) if you’re unsure about how to get involved or where to begin.
