Our Daily Bread
On Sunday June 11, we will celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ or Corpus Christi. We invite you to join our Parish Eucharistic Procession immediately following the 9:30AM Mass on Sunday, June 11.
As Catholics, we believe in the Real Presence: that Jesus Christ is truly present – body, blood, soul, and divinity – in the Eucharist, under the appearances of bread and wine. A Eucharistic Procession is an opportunity to walk with the Blessed Sacrament through your community. During a Eucharistic Procession, the priest carries the Eucharist in a monstrance and walks with the congregation following while singing and praying together. This is a perfect opportunity to grow in your own devotion to the Blessed Sacrament and to share your faith publicly.
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.
