Liturgy Committee

Committed to working towards more beautiful and reverent liturgies that instil a deep, instinctive sense of the sacred. This is done through the formation of lectors, extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion, altar servers and other ministries throughout the parish and, above all, by encouraging music that is truly holy, beautiful and ennobling. We endeavour to remind the faithful of their obligations as Catholics and encourage them on their journey of faith, and ultimately to show the world that the Church holds the source of all truth, beauty, and goodness.
