Liturgical Ministries

"The Work of the People"

Liturgy, defined as the "work of the people," includes the preparation and implementation of our community's liturgical celebrations.

The goal of liturgy is the "full, conscious, and active participation" of all the people in our worship.

When we think of liturgical ministry and "active participation" in worship, we may associate these with the musicians, lectors, presider, etc. However all members of the community actively participate in the important ministry known as the Ministry of the Assembly or the Ministry of the Celebrating Community.

Christ is present in the actions of the community of believers who come together to celebrate their faith and the presence of Christ in their lives. We strengthen one another's faith in the ways that we sing, respond, and are attentive to each other and to what is happening during our Sunday Eucharist. 

This indeed is our primary ministry.
