Liturgy

Liturgy Committee

Liturgy Committee meets periodically to plan all aspects of the liturgy for each of the liturgical seasons. Music, environment, and special needs for Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist, Greeters, and Lectors are the primary elements organized in preparation for Advent, Ordinary Time, and Easter, plus the special Feasts, Solemnities, and Holy Days of our Catholic Calendar. This is an ideal ministry for those who love the liturgy and want to help make it a prayerful experience.

Sacristans

Sacristans

Sacristans work quietly behind the scenes, usually in the sacristy, to prepare for the celebration of Mass and also to clean after Mass. This preparation involves refilling ciboria and patens with unconsecrated hosts, decanting wine into cups, preparing the gifts for the Offertory, and organizing the ritual for the Celebrant's washing of the hands. Cleaning after Mass also involves washing the holy vessels. This is a detailed ministry and requires explanation and training for various needs.
