The central action of the parish, the celebration of the Eucharist and the Sacraments, is the chief concern of the Liturgical Committee. It must continually search for ways to bring true participation to the community’s corporate worship, and see to it that the members of the community are prepared to celebrate.
Environment and Art enhances the communities awareness of the sacred. The Second Vatican Council calls for the “full, active, and conscience participation” of the people in the liturgy. The purpose of any environment for worship is to facilitate this goal in the celebration of the liturgy. The Liturgical Committee creates a physical environment that is a place that shows hospitality, sacredness, mystery, beauty and dignity. This committee plans and implements appropriate designs to enhance worship for the liturgical seasons of the year. The Christmas and Easter seasons are beautiful examples of the way they prepare our worship space.
