The Liturgy Commission is comprised of volunteers who coordinate the various ministries below.  The work of the commission is to ensure that the worship experience reforms and transforms the assembly to live the gospel message at home, school, and in the workplace.

 Altar Servers
Altar Servers assist the priest at each liturgy.  Anyone who has received First Eucharist and is in fourth grade or above may inquire about becoming an altar server.  After the initial training, servers attend a training session at least once a year, or when necessary.  Servers are assigned on a rotating basis.  Youth Altar ServersAnthony Braun
