Liturgy Planning Team

About Us
Liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed, at the same time it is the source from which all the Church's power flows.

Liturgy is the official public worship of the Church, which is grounded in the lives of our believing community celebrating as the Body of Christ; so that we may also be enriched by its effect and thus responds to our Baptismal call of service to the world.

The Parish Liturgy Committee bases its vision on the following liturgical principles :

  • Full, conscious and active participation of the worshipping community in its liturgical celebration is the aim to be considered before all else.
  • Participation by the Christian people is their right and duty by reason of their baptism.
  • To gather intentionally in God's presence is to gather our total selves, our complete persons. Hence our liturgical celebration and their preparation reflect who we are as a parish. The celebrations are grounded in the needs, hopes and desires of the assembly.

Our Mission
The Mission of the Parish Liturgy Committee is to foster good worship in the parish on an on-going basis with the view to reach out and evangelist beyond our parish, foster good community bonding and fellowship among all parishioners. In addition, following faithfully to the Parish Mission and Vision laid down by St. Anthony's Church.
