Formation for Liturgy Committee meetings
Parish Liturgy Committees usually have very busy agendas. This does not mean, however, that we should not take time at the start of each meeting to pray together. It is also good to spend 20 minutes after prayer on formation. The articles that follow come from our own publication, Liturgy, and are useful for this purpose. We will keep adding to this list. We suggest you direct your members to read a particular article before the meeting and share learnings and thoughts with other committee members at the meeting before you move on to the business part of the agenda.
