THE WORSHIP MINISTRY TEAM: OUR VISION
Bringing together musicians, members of the Art & Environment team and the liturgical ministries, we plan and coordinate the liturgies, feasts, and seasons of the church year. We seek prayerful, reflective, uplifting liturgies that transform our daily lives. We invite all people to a full, conscious and active participation in the Liturgy and strive to strengthen and support all Ministers of Liturgy through training, education and spirituality.
We also seek to enrich the assembly's understanding of Liturgy; of prayer, ritual, origin, purpose and beliefs. We strive to maintain our gracious customs and traditiions.
In bringing the honored of times past into the life of the Church today, we seek to provide for all people, at different levels of their faith, a variety of opportunities for prayer and reflection, inspiration and renewal. Through all the elements of Liturgy, our vision is to create a vision of noble simplicity; a haven of peace and joy, where all people may minister to and sustain one another as one Body in Christ.
WORSHIP MINISTRY TEAM
"God nurtures this vision through individual and communal prayer. In prayer we abide in God, freely opening ourselves to listen and respond to our Lord's gracious will. The Eucharist is our fullest prayer in which Christ's faithful love makes us one. By the Eucharist, the power of Christ's sacrificial love transforms us into His real presence in the world. We celebrate this joyous belief with uplifting liturgies that transform our daily lives."
FROM THE VISION STATEMENT OF ST. MARY MAGDALEN PARISH
Bringing together the Liturgical Ministries, Pastoral Musicians and members of the Art and Environment team, the Worship Ministry Team plans and coordinates the Liturgical celebrations of the parish. The Ministry Team has about 10 meetings a year (on the first Wednesday of the month) and does additional work in between the meetings. Members who volunteer for this ministry are asked to make a commitment for one year.
