A New, Exciting Formation Program
No Hands, No Voice, But Yours
You are invited to a series of presentations designed to deepen our understanding of the liturgical assembly and the roles of the liturgical ministries which serve it.
These Sunday morning presentations are part of a year-long series of learning opportunities for the liturgical ministers at SJCC. But all parishioners are welcome to join these Sunday morning programs (especially if you think you might be called to exercise a liturgical ministry now or in the future.)
- October 20: Focus sessions for the Ministry of Lector and the Ministry of Art and Environment
- November 3: Focus Sessions for the Ministry of Music and the Ministry of Hospitality (Ushers/Greeters)
- November 17: Focus Sessions for Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion and the Ministry of Service at the Altar (Altar Servers/ Sacristans/ Sisterhood of Saint Hunna)
All sessions are 9:20 to 10:30 am in the Formation and Fellowship Center.
Watch the video from the October 6th Session entitled: “The Basic Language of Symbol and Ritual: The Building Blocks of Catholic Liturgy and Sacraments,” the first general session in the program (please note: the direct audio recording failed, leaving only the in-camera microphone; you may need to put your computer/mobile device volume up).
Handouts for the Session
- Symbol, Ritual, Liturgy, and Sacraments: A Collection of Quotes, Extracts, and Inspirations
- The Dynamics of Ritual
Watch the video from the October 6th Session entitled: “Ministry of the Assembly: We Are Called to Communion with God,” the second general session in the program (please note: the direct audio recording failed for the first part of this video and you may need to put your computer/mobile device volume up but at 9:33 in the video, a better, direct audio begins).
Complete the Registration Form if you would like to be a part of the entire 6-month process. Return the form to the Parish Office, drop it in the Offertory Basket, or leave it at the Welcome desk.
The title, No Hands, No Voice, But Yours is a paraphrase of the great prayer of Saint Teresa of Avila. It is a most suitable expression of the ministry of the entire Christian community and the liturgical ministers in particular.
