Fellowship and Support Ministries represent a collection of adult ministries that strive to address a wide-range of ministerial needs within the parish family. Each ministry gathers a particular group of people who share common interests and or experiences. Our goal is to bring the community of faith together to build relationships, share life experiences, and foster support from others.

What is Liturgy? 

A living mystery, it is always more than we can say, it eludes any easy definition.  "The liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the fount from which all her power flows." (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy.10)

Liturgy is ... the public worship carried out by the People of God, the Mystical Body of Christ, the Church.
Liturgy is....the work of the people.

"Liturgy" used as another word for "Mass." Father might say in the announcements, "..such and such a meeting will take place after the 8:30 liturgy."  Liturgy is a word we use for many of the rituals of the church; eg. The Rite of Infant Baptism celebrated on a Sunday afternoon is a liturgy; a Wedding, with or without a Mass is a liturgy; The Blessing of Animals is a liturgy.
