The Mass, or celebration of the Eucharist, is the fundamental liturgical ritual in the Catholic Church. It is the central action and aspect of our lives of faith and the primary way in which Catholics worship God as a community.


The word “Mass” comes from the Latin word ‘missa’ meaning ‘mission’ or ‘sending’ because its purpose is to send forth the faithful to bring forth or share the Good News of Jesus, and to be His presence in the world. It is also a time to give God thanks and praise, as the word ‘Eucharist’ means thanksgiving.


These two concepts of sending out and praise underpin much of the work of the Worship Ministry Leadership Team. As Christians we were tasked by Jesus when, in the Great Commission, he told the disciples to… “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” As a team, we are working to provide structures to support all of our parish communities to fulfill that commission; to support the great works that are being done across our wonderful parish.


Similarly, the expression of praise is a vital aspect of our worshipping communities. In the case of our strategic goal, one aspect that the Worship team is working towards, is to support a vibrant and engaging music ministry for Sunday Masses. Much has been written about seeking the assistance of musicians, to add this important ministry to Sunday Mass, and while some wonderful people have stepped forward to volunteer, we are earnestly looking to identify and bring onboard more musical talent in our communities.


This week, the team welcomed Donna Gordon to the team. Many of you will know Donna through her work in the Sacramental Program and we are thrilled to have her wisdom, enthusiasm and experience as we work towards our Parish Strategic Plan. In a case of double blessings, Justine Ashworth will also be working with the Worship team for a time and we warmly welcome Justine and the many gifts she brings.


God Bless, Paul
