Arts and Environment

Art and Environment is the ministry that adorns our worship space with the outward signs of the eight liturgical seasons in the Church calendar: Advent, Christmas, Lent, Palm Sunday, Holy Week, Easter, Pentecost and Ordinary Time.  Each of these seasons requires a specific color as well as the presence or absence of certain liturgical objects that symbolically evoke the spirit and meaning of a given season.

Ten to fifteen people are needed to execute each of the various changes to the chapel environment appropriate for that season.  Each season thus brings with it an exceptional opportunity for participating members of the parish to deepen their experience of the life of Christ being celebrated during a particular season.  At the same time, those carrying out the changes are gifting their fellow parishioners with the aesthetic elements that bring them closer to the Savior’s time on earth.

For me, this ministry fulfills a commitment to an aspect of stewardship that I can share with others immediately involved in the seasonal adjustments and with the entire parish regardless of the Mass they typically attend.
