Liturgical Ministries at Holy Family
Welcome to the Liturgical Ministries Page. Please find descriptions of the various ways in which you can volunteer to assist us in the Liturgies at Holy Family.
"Following the liturgical renewal promoted by the Council, the lay faithful themselves have acquired a more lively awareness of the tasks that they fulfill in the liturgical assembly and its preparation, and have become more widely disposed to fulfill them: the liturgical celebration, in fact, is a sacred action not simply of the clergy, but of the entire assembly. It is, therefore, natural that the tasks not proper to the ordained ministers be fulfilled by the lay faithful. In this way there is a natural transition from an effective involvement of the lay faithful in the liturgical action to that of announcing the word of God and pastoral care."
Pope Saint John Paul II: Christifideles Laici - On the Vocation and Mission of the Lay Faithful in the Church and in the World, quote from paragraph 23
