Our Membership includes

Members are Sisters and Associates who are committed to the Statement of Purpose and are endorsed by the General Superior and Council. Being aware of the contributions new persons can make to the committee, our membership changes according to needs and availability. Consultation with resource persons, e.g. music director, presiders, etc., is ongoing. Each person is a full member of the committee and some carry additional roles, e.g., council liaison, coordinator of pastoral liturgy, sacristan, chaplain.

A subcommittee of the Congregational Liturgy Committee, the Seasonal Planning Committee coordinates the preparation of liturgies of particular seasonal feasts and observances. (e.g. Paschal and Incarnational Cycles).
