Liturgical Ministry

The liturgy and music ministries at Blessed Trinity Catholic Community and Spirit of Christ Mission are guided by the principles of the Second Vatican Council: “The Church desires that all the faithful be led to that full, conscious, and active participation in liturgical celebrations called for by the nature of the liturgy. Such participation by the Christian people is their right and duty by reason of their baptism.” (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, #14)

All members of the parish are welcome to participate in a variety of ministries, liturgical and musical: as lectors, ministers of Holy Communion, servers, ushers, greeters, art and environment, bread bakers, singers, or instrumentalists.

The Parish Liturgy Team meets regularly, on a seasonal basis.

Those who desire to share in these various ministries participate in the Liturgical Ministries Formation Session provided periodically throughout the year.
