Different groups are invited to be responsible for sponsoring the treats and fundraising is sometimes used for teen groups during the gathering.

Lectors

Lectors are used at each mass to proclaim the Word of God. There is a training and schedule. Readings, prayers of the faithful, mass parts and songs are announced. Junior lectors are used at children masses. Often pairs of lectors are used during a single mass.
