Purpose: To encourage people to look into and embrace a deeper faith and a lively commitment to living with joy and confidence as a fruit of having experienced the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit awakens graces received in Sacramental Baptism and Confirmation, and brings with it a love of Holy Scripture and prayer, a dynamic desire to cooperate fully with God’s will, and heart of service. The result is that one desires and enjoys praising the Lord in song and glorifying Him in service to others.
Responsibilities: Openness to the Holy Spirit! Willingness to pray for others, musical ability, hospitality (welcome people and serve refreshments), planning for worship, offering short teachings, preparing written cards for mailing, maintaining database, setting up and taking down chairs, tables and sound equipment each week.
Time Commitment: Two hours per week for members, more for musicians (rehearsals, set up and break down). Meets year-round. On the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th Thursday of the month meetings are in the Parish Center from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. On the 3rd Thursday of the month there is a Healing Mass in the Church, with Praise and Worship prior to Mass, and healing prayer afterwards.
