Sunday evening liturgy is the highlight our Christian Faith and Catholic Identity. Students and community members are encouraged to participate in our liturgical celebrations. Liturgy means participation of the people in the work of God. Liturgy is a communal response to God. We give thanks and praise to God for what God has done for us, for the love and mercy God has shown. Liturgy needs our full participation – our attention, our prayers, our responses, our singing. It is an activity, not a spectator sport! Trained by our staff, students take an active role in the liturgy through the following ministries.
Eucharistic Minister: Students share the Eucharistic meal with fellow worshippers.
Lectors: Students proclaim the good News of our Lord through a meaningful presentation of the Scriptures.
Liturgical Choir: Singers and instrumentalists energize our weekend liturgies. All voices and talents welcomed!
Ministry of Hospitality at Liturgy: Students offer hospitality to worshippers before, during, and after liturgy by passing out song books, assisting guests, and straightening the chapel after the liturgy.
Sacristans: Students assist in setting up for liturgies and cleaning up afterwards at liturgical programs.
