Eucharistic & Sunday Morning Ministries

The word "liturgy" means the work of the people. The priest presides over the "work" of the whole community when we gather on Sunday mornings and other times for the Holy Eucharist. The entire gathered community participates in our services. Parishioners are called upon for particular roles of leadership.
