On Thursday August 6 at 7 p.m. at the Adult Faith Formation House, and via Facebook live stream from the parish Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ssppccwaterloo/ ), Deacon Tom will provide the second opportunity for you to participate in the 2020 renewal/formation for all current ministers and anyone interested in becoming a liturgical minister. You only need to attend one of the sessions in 2020, they are all the same.
Face coverings required and attendance will be limited to ~10 to allow for social distancing.
If you have been a minister for a short time, or a long time, or if you are not a minister but want to serve in one of our liturgical ministries, please plan to participate in person, or via Facebook live stream, in the renewal/formation session. At some point we will return to normal and have all of our liturgical ministers back at our Masses and in the meantime it is good for us to stay renewed/formed in what we are participating in when we serve as liturgical ministers. Liturgical Ministers play an important role in providing us with an environment for full and active participation in the Eucharist and Diocesan guidelines recommend annual renewal, formation, workshops, etc. for our ministers.
In addition, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC) must renew their mandate from the Bishop every 3 years in order to continue to serve as an EMHC. This renewal/formation is for all Liturgical Ministers [Hospitality, Lectors, Ushers, Cantors, Choir, Gift Bearers, EMHC, Musicians, etc.). If you are simply interested in hearing Deacon Tom speak about ‘The coming together of heaven and earth at the Mass’, please join us on the Facebook live stream that evening from the parish Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ssppccwaterloo/ ), or any time after that. If you have any questions, please contact Deacon Tom at the parish office or [email protected] .
