The Liturgy Committee of the Church of St. Genevieve is dedicated to serving our parish by working to provide a prayerful liturgy. The congregation is called to full, active, conscious participation through music, environment and well trained volunteers of the various liturgical ministries.
The Liturgy Committee is accountable to the pastor and parish governing councils. The Liturgy Committee is under the direction of the pastor. The Worship Director plans the liturgy meeting agendas and runs the meetings with the pastor. The sub-committees of the Liturgy Committee are accountable to the pastor and the Liturgy Committee. The Liturgy Committee does not fundraise but receives an annual budget from the parish to support liturgical activities.
The Liturgy Committee is comprised of the pastor, the Worship Director, Environment Committee Chair, and 3-4 volunteers. The volunteers should be fully initiated Catholics who are active in our parish community and who feel they have insights that could benefit our liturgies.
The officers are comprised of the chairperson and the secretary. The chairperson is the employed Worship Director. The secretary is filled on a volunteer basis and has no term limit.
The Liturgy Committee meets on a monthly basis on the second Thursday of each month with the exception of the months of June and August when meetings are not scheduled. Meetings may be changed periodically at the discretion of the pastor or Worship Director. Meetings total 10 per year. Other sub-committees and ministries schedule meetings/practices as deemed necessary by the leaders of said committees and the pastor.
The following ministries fall under the guidance of the Liturgy Committee:
