Art & Environment Ministry


Mission StatementBanner-Church-Fall

The Art and Environment Ministry plans and coordinates the decoration of the worship space for all major feasts, seasons, and celebrations of the liturgical year to enhance the worship of our parishioners.

Goal and Objectives

This ministry strives to embellish the worship space with designs that complement the Church and enhance its architecture through the use of natural plants and flowers that add life to bricks and mortar and reflect the beauty of God’s creation. We work with materials that radiate color, illustrate skilled workmanship and original ideas, and suggest the sacred, the joyful, and the eternal.  Most important, our decorations help create a welcoming, holy place of worship.

Actions

The Art and Environment Ministry:

  • Creates, maintains, and replaces seasonal decorations, altar cloths, flowers, and plants as needed
  • Inventories and stores seasonal materials in the servers’ sacristy and in the storage area under the music room.
  • Records sources for plants, materials, fabrics, etc., so that future members of the ministry will have resource records.
  • Records expenses incurred to help determine future budgets.
  • Maintains photo records of our worship space in order to assist those who are planning weddings, funerals, and celebratory events.  This album is available in the rectory.
  • Keeps ministry members aware and informed of the importance of their role in parish worship through planned meetings at MSW as well as workshops offered by the Archdiocesan Office of Divine Worship.
  • Works with the liturgy coordinator and planning teams in order to coordinate the actions of the liturgies with the environment and the environment with liturgical activities and events.
  • Reviews scripture and studies various documents on art and environment in liturgical worship in order to prepare for feasts and seasons.
