The Liturgy Committee helps support the Pastor, Liturgy Director and Music Director in planning and evaluating Liturgies at St. Theresa’s. The Committee places special emphasis on the Seasonal Liturgies of the Church, including Advent, Lent and Ordinary Time as well as the wonderful celebrations for Christmas and Holy Week Liturgies. In planning these Liturgies, the Committee is often used as a sounding board for ideas involving the Church environment, themes we want to emphasize, and special speakers or activities to enhance the Liturgical celebrations. The Committee also focuses its attention on training of our Liturgical Ministers, ensuring that the Liturgy is presented well and in keeping with Church requirements. In our desire to continually improve our Liturgies we evaluate how well our Liturgies are presented. Tools for evaluation such as feedback questionnaires, individual assessment and critiques are being explored. Committee members meet once a month on the third Tuesday of the month in the Library from August to June. Sub-committees involving other volunteers (ministers) are utilized to help with the planning and carrying out of the larger seasonal celebrations. If you are interested in being closely involved with our Liturgies and want to see them be welcoming, vibrant, alive and spiritual then this is a ministry you should consider.
