The Liturgy Committee plans the seasonal liturgies for Advent, Christmas, Lent, Holy Week, Easter, and Pentecost; special celebrations such as All Soul’s Day and Thanksgiving; the training and scheduling of Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, greeters, altar servers, and ushers; and the general planning of the liturgical year. Liturgy Committee minutes are taken and are posted at the end of this page.
If you would like to help Liturgy be the core of our community’s worship, please join us. We meet monthly, September to May, and welcome all interested parishioners.
