  • Worship Commission Meeting March 17, 2015
    Attendance: Fr. David Mowry, Tom Kaiser, Mary Pat Vanderlaan, Dave McCaffrey, Lucy Milar, Peg Cello, Jim Viola.

    Faith Sharing: Since we attended the presentation of the relic of St. Pope John Paul II yesterday, we had a short prayer led by Father David.

    Minutes:  January minutes approved.

    Parish Council:  Fr. David reported that PC met with Diocesan Curia members who led discussion on implementation of Bishop Conlon's Three Pillars priority (Evangelization, Discipleship, and Charity).  Of the three, IC will focus on Charity first.  We are to focus on service of those outside the parish in need, and to participate in advocacy for the common good; human dignity; help for the poor.  Go outside the church door and help those in need.  Care for people in need and advocate for and with the voiceless.
    Leadership night recap – Dr. Healy – discussion centered on how to find creative ways to pray for people who are struggling with family matters, e.g., separation, etc.

    Year of Family:  This led into Year of Family discussion where ideas included:  prayer services; petitions at Mass.  We agreed that we want to sponsor 2 Prayer Services (August and October) – we would have personalized invitations sent where individuals would write a personal note telling the family that they are praying for them and invite them to a special Prayer Service. 

    Other ideas included having a basket where people could drop in their intentions, which would be remembered as we do our Book of Prayers in the back of church.  We could place ads in the “community boards” – newspapers. 

    Other idea was to create web links that connect to all the various charities that are available to people – this can be passed on to the Christian Service group.

    We finalized the recommended language for the Year of Family and Consecrated Life prayer cards.  Father David will request approval from Father Tom.  Thanks to Mary Lou and Dave Mc. for their work on this.  We hope to get these in the pews for Mercy Sunday.
