and those who are interested in liturgy. It is also an “umbrella” commission, and
includes the heads of music, acolytes, altar guild, lectors/litanists, and Priest-in-
Charge to insure that a high level of communication is maintained among those
who are responsible for all aspects of our weekly worship. This commission has been
