Liturgy Committee


The Liturgy Committee is concerned with bringing the Cathedral parish community and others closer to God through all forms of worship. It seeks to nurture and deepen the parish’s public and private prayer life through liturgy including the sacramental rites, devotions, and related ceremonies and events. It encourages the community’s full and active participation through well-formed liturgical ministries and programs. It also strives to be a model of the Church’s liturgical life in her service as the mother church of the Archdiocese.
