This committee educates the parish on historical grounds and current changes in the Liturgy. It works with the RCIA in planning all aspects of liturgical life. Projects may include study of the rites and scripture, preparation of Communal Reconciliation services, joint services with other churches or special Liturgies of the Word. Training of volunteers for ministries of lector, Eucharistic minister, funerals and the preparation of prayers of the faithful are provided by this committee. Parishioners interested in decorating the church for special liturgies may wish to participate in the Art and Environment planning sessions. This committee meets in full session 2-4 times a year and in partial session on an as needed basis.
