2011 parish Assembly SS Alban & Stephen Catholic Church in St Albans

Worship - a PPC priority group for 2011

MISSION

The Group aims to create in the parish a greater understanding of the liturgy and its use and to support the clergy in developing and co-ordinating the opportunities for worship.


WORSHIP VALUES

Worship is more than singing - our lives must be dedicated to giving to God the glory in our employment, our spare time, relationships, finances and families. 
Service has to be servant-based and one that encourages honesty and forgiveness when views conflict with those of others.  A community should encourage a personal commitment to openess to the Holy Spirit in the Mass and include moments of silence.

We are blessed with having access at all times to the prayer room with the Blessed Sacrament.

WHAT HAS BEEN ACHIEVED?

-
adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on the First Friday of each month-.
 
-
a day of recollection for Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion and  Ministers of the Word

-
time for reflection and sharing for musicians, focusing on the new translation of the wording of the Mass.
-
working with Small Groups to have preparation days for Advent and Lent focusing on the theme of the diocesan booklets.   (The days are open to all in the parish).

-
commencing co-ordination of the rotas for each of the Masses on solemn feast days.

-
organising  a rota for preparing the church for the 6 p.m. Mass on Saturdays and for the changing of the banners for the appropriate liturgical colour.

-
arranging a pilgrimage in the summer for members of the parish.

WHAT WE WOULD STILL LIKE TO ACHIEVE

-
to have 2 representatives for our six Masses to monitor feed back from the congregation.
-
to have 2 representatives from the Italian and Polish Masses.    
-
to receive input from the diocese on ways to improve our liturgy.
-
to have High Mass once a month - perhaps using outside resources.
-
to identify available liturgical resources, e.g. CDs, books, etc and how they may be used for the benefit of all.
