“Because the assembly gathers in the presence of God, liturgy’s climate...cannot be satisfied with anything less than the beautiful in its environment...” (Environment and Art in Catholic Worship)
At present, Art and Environment matters are handled on an ad hoc basis. Volunteers are always welcome to offer ideas and assist in the planning and preparation of our church’s environment. We are blessed to have several talented and dedicated parishioners whose expertise in this area have proved invaluable.
The Women’s Guild has a large part in this ministry. The altar linens and adornments of other liturgical furniture in the church is in their very capable hands, and their work is very much appreciated. The large banners are changed with each liturgical season.
The Christmas and Easter seasons require the most concentrated efforts, with their major additions of flowers and other seasonal decorations. Help is always welcome on the actual days when the church is decorated for Christmas (usually on December 23) and Easter (on the morning of the Easter Vigil).
