Altar Servers

Assist the priest in the liturgy. Servers must have finished the fourth grade and have been trained in order to serve.

Eucharistic Ministers

These dedicated men and women assist in the distribution of Holy Communion during mass and also bring Communion to the sick and infirmed at their homes, hospital, or nursing home on a weekly basis.


Lectors help proclaim the Word of God at Masses. They are typically scheduled to read once a month. Training sessions for good public readers are held for ninth graders through adults.

Music Ministry

Music and Liturgy are certainly the high-points of life here at St. John Vianney. People who gather for Sunday Liturgy to worship are aided by our music ministry program. A variety of musical forms enhances our Masses: from organist and leader of song, to choral groups and ensembles. Anyone who has a gifted singing voice or ability to play a musical instrument is sure to find a group to their liking:


Ushers assist in the orderly execution of the church functions and celebrations. They help by greeting parishioners, seating them and taking up the offertory collection.


Bible Study

The Scriptures are prayed and explored to give participants a greater understanding and appreciation of the Word of God. Recent experience has shown that men, women and children have strengthened their relationship with God, and with their families by prayer. The following groups have formed:

Eucharistic Adoration

Plan to include the Lord in your daily spiritual life by the very concrete and specific way of contemplative prayer, Eucharistic Adoration. Currently we have four days of adoration each week: Tuesday and Thursday, all day; Wednesday evenings; and Fridays. We also have All Night Adoration on the First Friday of the month. Check our Adoration Schedule for times. Through adoration, parishes have seen an increase in vocations, a decrease in crime, answers to prayers, an increase in Mass attendance, and a deepening of faith. Please consider pledging a weekly hour to come to the chapel and pray before Jesus in adoration.


An Ultreya was formed in 1982 at St. John Vianney Church so that all Calvert County Catholic Cursillistas would be able to meet locally on a monthly basis. The word itself, Cursillo, means a short course in Christianity and the Ultreya was formed as a support group where those who have completed the course, called Cursillistas, come together to share:

This local Ultreya enhances the sense of community and spiritual development as an extension of the Cusillo experience.

First Saturday Devotions

On the first Saturday of each month, an 8:00 A.M. Mass is conducted along with the Rosary. Confessions are also heard after Mass at this time.


The Rosary is prayed every Monday at 9 A.M. in the Chapel to pray for Mary’s wish: increased devotion to her Son through her prayer, the rosary. Spend an hour in prayer of praise, petition, silence and one Mystery of the Rosary. Coordinator: Linda Vaulina (410) 535-0673
