The Liturgy Committee is responsible for facilitating the liturgical and spiritual life of our parish. They look at the “big picture” to help enhance and improve liturgical celebrations to encourage full, conscious and active participation by the whole community. The Liturgy Committee usually meets on the first Tuesday of the month.

Easter, Christmas, Pentecost and so on. Major Areas of Responsibility include, The liturgical life of the parish as a whole. The development of policies which affect liturgy planning and practice for the year and for special occasions e.g. Sacraments of Initiation, Weddings, Funerals.

The planning of programs of continuing education in liturgy for the Liturgy Committee, the preparation groups, the liturgical ministers and the parish as a whole.
