Ministry of Collector
Collectors at the Sunday Mass play a special role in the Liturgy by taking up the collection of the faithful. They may be assisted by volunteers who help take up the collections. It is at the offertory that the collection of money or other gifts, is taken up. While these may be brought forward together with the bread and wine, they are not to be placed on the altar. The priest then invites the community to pray with him over the offerings. In our parish, at the English Mass, the offertory plate (or basket) is passed around to the faithful. In the Zulu Mass, the faithful approach the Collectors standing in front of the altar and make their contribution. Sometimes, after the Communion Prayer, a second collection is taken up for a special need or the poor. The collection is taken during Mass because it is a sacrifice and gift from each of us to God and to the community. This offering becomes sacred in its intent.
