Our Daily Bread

“Liturgy is the revelation of God to humanity and human’s relationship to God. It is an infinity sign of God’s presence in the world, i.e. the living proof of His presence.” – Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

 

The word “liturgy” originally meant a “public work” or a “service in the name of/on behalf of the people.” In Christian tradition, it means the participation of the People of God in “the work of God.” Through the liturgy Christ, our redeemer and high priest, continues the work of our redemption in, with, and through his Church [CCC 1069]. The liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; it is also the font from which all her power flows. It is therefore the privileged place for catechizing the People of God, especially in the Eucharist, Christ Jesus works in fullness for the transformation of men [CCC 1074].

We at Holy Spirit Parish, we thrive to have a life giving and vibrant liturgy, i.e. stirring and uplifting the community’s religious zeal and spiritual devotion that would lead and engage them consciously, actively and  fruitful participation in the work of God.  In order to achieve this goal, we formed the Liturgy Committee who collaboratively assist and support the Pastor in carrying out his ideas and plans for the parish interjecting it with the committee’s creative thoughts and recommendation. In addition, the committee serves as an advisor on how to maintain and improve on the quality, the value, and the excellence of various liturgical activities in the parish, how to resolve some challenges based on the shared feedback of our parishioners, how to be an effective stewards of the liturgy resources, and how to anticipate the Church needs for faith enrichment, soulful prayer, and praiseful worship.

Members of the committee are represented by the Chair of each Liturgical Ministry: Altar Servers, Art & Environment, Extraordinary Ministers of the Holy Eucharist, Lectors, Mass Coordinator, Music, Ushers, and other members of the parish at large.

On Sunday, we gather as the Body of Christ to celebrate the Lord’s Day, the day of Christ’s Resurrection. We come together as the People of God, the Church, to worship with one heart and one voice.
