Liturgy and Music

“In the celebration of the Mass the faithful form a holy people, a people of God’s own possession and a royal Priesthood, so that they may give thanks to God and offer the unblemished sacrificial Victim not only by means of the hands of the Priest but also together with him and so that they may learn to offer their very selves.” General Instruction to the Roman Missal, no. 95

We are all called to worship God by virtue of our baptism. In baptism we are made a new creation in Christ, called to serve and be witnesses of Christ in the world. When we gather for mass, we praise God, listen to the holy Word of God, pray for the needs of the world, receive Christ in the Eucharist, and are sent out as Christ’s disciples.

Volunteers in the areas of liturgy and music are serving not only as volunteers of their time and talent, but as ministers. Ministers are people who are engaged with meeting the spiritual needs of the Church, and engage in their work with an attitude of reverence and humility.

The work of the liturgy could not happen without the help of many lay ministers taking an active role in a variety of ministries. Good liturgy and music depend on assistance from: Ministers of Hospitality offering a warm welcome; Lectors proclaiming the Scriptures; Extraordinary Ministers feeding the Church with the Body and Blood of Christ; musicians sharing their gifts of song as cantors, choir members or instrumentalists; leaders for the Children’s Liturgy of the Word. We need people to assist in preparing the worship and gathering spaces for the liturgical seasons. Finally, we need people to advise the Director of Music and Liturgy in liturgical matters by becoming a member of the Worship Commission.
