Liturgical Service


"In Christ, you have received God's unconditional love, and, in Christ, you are called to extend that same unconditional love to others."

Liturgical ministry and specifically the ministry of  greeting and ushering, is perhaps the first exposure people have to Saint Thomas More and possibly the most crucial in the church because it is one of the most visible. It is a ministry vital to the saving work of the church.
