Liturgy, "The work of the people."

Liturgies at St. Mary are well-prepared, carefully practiced, and prayerfully conducted. The liturgy is a communal activity where the members of Christ's Body come together to witness the presence of Christ in Word and Sacrament. The liturgy is the source and summit of the Christian faith.

If your are interested in liturgy and able to commit your time and effort to help prepare our liturgy, perhaps you would be interested in joining the Liturgy Commission.
