Full and active participation

Liturgy isn’t the work of just a few people. Everyone who celebrates the liturgy has a role to play. We hope you find a place to do your part of our work together.

Christmas Art & Environment Volunteers

The Holy Spirit Art and Environment Ministry led by Patricia Bilello and Sue Schill keep our church beautifully prepared for worship year round. Our Art and Environment ministry includes 17 parishioners who work with their hearts sharing their gift of beauty and design each week. Extra help is needed to assist our regular team to prepare for Christmas that is fast approaching.

Please consider helping on Saturday, December 23rd to prepare the gym and on Sunday, December 24th at 11:00 a.m. to convert from the 4th Sunday of Advent to an environment for Christmas in the church in a matter of hours.

Contact Katie Metzger at 408-997-5115 or kmetzger@dsj.org if you are interested in sharing your time in this way.

Temporary Liturgical Adaptations during the 2017/2018 Flu/Cold Season

The Public Health Officer of Santa Clara County has again requested that we make a number of temporary adaptations to our celebrations of the Eucharist, so as to foster the health of our worshipping communities and also of the wider community:

– Holy Communion will not be shared under the form of Consecrated Wine

– Holy Communion will be distributed only into the hands of communicants

– People should refrain from holding hands during the the Lord’s Prayer and the Sign of Peace
