Liturgical Ministries

The liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the church is directed; it is also the source from which all its power flows. For the goal of apostolic endeavor is that all who are made children of God by faith and Baptism should come together to praise God in the midst of his church, to take part in the sacrifice and to eat the Lord’s Supper. The liturgy, in its turn, moves the faithful filled with “the paschal sacraments” to be “one in their commitment to you”; it prays that “they hold fast in their lives to what they have grasped by their faith” (SC # 10).
