The purpose of the Worship Advisory Commission is to plan and provide for the spiritual development of each member of the parish through liturgical celebrations on Sundays and major feasts and seasons. Members have a love for and a strong commitment to liturgy for a minimum of three years. The Commission meets on the first Tuesday of each month, September through May, at 7 p.m.
It is part of our mission to "live and share" the Good News of Jesus Christ.
