Worship

The Lord’s Supper is its center, for there the whole community of the faithful encounters the risen Lord who invites them to His banquet.    [CCC 1166]
Cluster Leader: Bob Bartholomew

The goal of Worship is to help create a prayerful community from the time a parishioner enters our Church, through his or her departure after the recessional hymn. All play a part in the liturgical celebration, each in his or her own way.
