The purpose of this ministry is to enhance and encourage the worship of the faith community at the Church of St. Thomas More and stimulate and strengthen personal and communal spiritual growth.
“The liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; it is also the fount from which all her power flows.”
–The Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy: Ch. I, no. 10
