~co-ordinates the various Liturgical Ministers such as Eucharistic ministers, Lectors,  Ministers of Hospitality (Ushers), Altar Servers, Music Ministries, Art & Environment.

 


The service of our Liturgical Ministers has the power to enhance our worship and strengthens the faith of the assembly. This council will make sure that the proper training and the distribution of pertinent information is provided to all Liturgical Ministers.

 

The Liturgy Council recognizes the important roles and responsibilities accepted by our Liturgical Ministers. By answering a special call -- they are more than volunteers -- they are truly visible examples and reverent ministers of Jesus and His people.

 

The worship of God is our primary expression as a Community of Faith. Our Liturgy is the only activity which embraces every single parishioner of Saint Jude Parish.

 

In the Divine Liturgy we hear the Word of God and experience the Celebration of the Most Holy Eucharist, the source and summit of our Catholic Faith. Be it then our purpose and privilege to diligently labor, with united hearts and minds, towards assuring that all who come to worship at St Jude Church may experience the saving power of God in Community, in the Word, and in the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Altar.
