LITURGYOn Sundays, we come together as a family to break bread, to tell stories, to sing and to dance. We celebrate within a tradition shared with the larger Roman Catholic Church, the broader Christian community, and the Communion of Saints. But Cabrini's lively spirit and intimate setting allows us to experience that tradition as part of a vibrant community.
The life of that community is apparent whenever we touch each other at a personal level - by announcing our individual needs and gratitude for blessings, by calling each other by name, or by accepting our sometimes boisterous and wandering children for what they are. Though these things define us as a community, the liturgical setting in which they take place depends on the ministries listed below.
Mass CoordinatorsLighting candles, preparing the altar, and inviting others to bring up gifts are a few of the ways Mass Coordinators welcome the community for worship. Contact Marietta Booth (5:00 pm Mass), Kay Jones (9:00 am Mass) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Communion MinistersHoly gifts for holy people. Communion Ministers come from within the community to serve. Please let the Mass Coordinators know if you’re willing to perform this ministry and know that younger children, especially, are invited to hold baskets during communion.
Other MinistriesThere are also many other opportunities to participate as a reader, a musician, a dancer, or in drama. We welcome all gifts in our celebration of liturgy.
There are also opportunities to get involved behind the scenes.
Bread BakingBaking communion bread is a meditative, prayerful experience. The sharing of the home-baked loaf is one of the important constants of our liturgy at Cabrini. Those who bake it have a very special ministry. For more information contact Bev Atkinson or email email@example.com.
EnvironmentThis group creates and maintains a welcoming environment in the worship space befitting the liturgical season. All those with artistic talent and creative ideas as well as those willing to set it in place are welcome. Contact Joanna Cortright or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Word TeamThis group meets every week to discuss the Sunday Scripture Readings and their implications in our lives. The Word Team evaluates the preaching that takes place in our community, and team members as well as others are invited to share in the reflections at our parish liturgies. Contact Chris Kosowski or email email@example.com.
Liturgy CommitteeSets the overall direction for liturgy at Cabrini. A place to do some “dreaming” as well as sharing information and making the decisions that shape our liturgies. Meetings are every quarter. All are welcome. Contact Jim Polakowski or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Liturgy Planning TeamPlans liturgies for special Sundays and feasts as well as the liturgical seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent, the Paschal Triduum, and Easter.
