"Liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the church is directed; at the same time it is the fountain from which all her power flows." (from the Catholic Church's Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy.)
The Worship Ministry takes as its mission this realization of the Vatican II vision. Thus, they are entrusted to prepare well for the Church's liturgy by enabling all to share their God given gifts by providing opportunities for all of us to participate in Sunday Liturgy. It is through our celebration of Eucharist that we are called to bring the light of Christ into the world through our daily actions.
