WORSHIP COMMISSION

The Worship Commission enters into the liturgical life of the parish community and keeps in focus the reality that through baptism the gathered community is the foundation of setting for the liturgy. It is the gathered community, the assembly, which performs the liturgical actions, not the clergy or lay ministers alone. This commission oversees and evaluates the various liturgical ministries including celebration of the liturgy, liturgical planning, lectors, communion ministry, ushers, altar servers, and music. The commission is directed toward the improvement of the quality of our worship. The membership includes the pastor, assistant pastor, pastoral associate, and representatives of the liturgical ministries, as well as other parishioners interested in fostering good worship through rejoicing, renewing and reaching out to others.

LECTORS

The primary purpose of the lector is to proclaim the Word of the Lord at the Sunday liturgies. In addition to being on a rotating schedule for the weekend Masses, lectors may be requested to read at "special liturgies" or "prayer services" throughout the year. Yearly workshops are held to train new lectors and promote the spiritual development of the reading ministry. If interested contact Deacon Phil Myers.

Our Lector schedule is published for our parishioners in an Adobe Acrobat .pdf format. To view the schedule you must have the Adobe Acrobat reader which is available as a FREE download from www.Adobe.com

CANTORS

Cantors are song leaders. The purpose of the cantor is to enable greater participation both in singing and praying by the entire worshipping community. The ministry of the parish cantor is to bring the song of the assembled community to life and to assist the people so that their song may be prayer from the heart as well as from the head.
