Our liturgies are both the source and summit of our lives! We receive our spiritual nourishment and then go out to evangelize the world; we come back to celebrate and give thanks to our God! The Worship Commission has at its heart the concern for the people who form the assembly, as all who gather are the ministers of the Eucharist. Vatican II spoke to the four ways that Christ is present in the Eucharist—in the assembly, in the priest, in the Word of God and in the bread and the wine. It is our goal to help all assembled understand Christ’s presence through all of these as we go forward into the world to spread His message in our thoughts, words and deeds.
The Worship Commission currently meets every other month. Representatives of the ministries of Music, Art and Environment, Lectors, Ushers, Extraordinary Ministers and Hospitality amongst others come together to help guide our parish in communal worship in the identity of the Body of Christ.
Our criteria? Are the people given a sense of the mystery of God’s saving love and presence among us? Do the participants realize they are part of a worshiping Body bound by God? Does the assembly have a sense of a living tradition, linking believers from history to the present? Does the liturgy have some sense of a hope not yet realized? Are we drawn toward the kingdom of God? (This is the criteria set forth by Archbishop Weakland in 1982)
