This team meets about every month to plan and execute special worship services throughout the year, including the Pet Blessing, Mass on the Grass, and the Holy Week and Easter services. This team has also instituted a quarterly healing prayer offering in our Sunday worship.
We call a worship service a liturgy, which comes from a Greek word meaning "the work of the people." Many join in this joyful work of seeing that our time of prayer and praise goes well. Some of the official roles are listed below. Those that require a brief training are marked with an asterisk (*). In addition, Safe Sanctuary training is required for individuals who work with our children. For information about participating in these ministries, please contact our office at 734-429-2991 or Email the office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
