Parish Liturgy Committees usually have very busy agendas. Our busyness means making time for prayer is even more important. After prayer, it is good to put aside some time, (up to 20 minutes) for formation.
Our magazine 'Liturgy' provides excellent material for Liturgy Committees to reflect on. . The articles below come from this publication. It is good practice to a selected article before the meeting and discuss thoughts about the article with other committee members at the meeting before you move on to the business part of the agenda.
