Through these pages, many of you have seen the liturgies as carried out in our parish. Although things are not ideal, we are moving towards recovering the sense of the sacred that should underpin our theology of worship.
Among the things we have done.
New processional canopy for our Marian processions.
Forming our own schola and reintroducing plainchant, polyphony and 4 part hymns that is part of the patrimony of our Church. We've also pushed for more processions with longer routes. Efforts are also being made to push for the current 1970's metal contraptions to be replaced with wooden pews.
Several things you don't see, such as ensuring that the incense used is of the finest quality as befitting the worship of God. You wouldn't believe the crap I've smelled in some parishes.
We do what we can.
Now, here's where I need your help. Having seen the way things are carried out, do feel free to give constructive suggestions on how we might best improve.
Things to remember. We're broke. This is important. Secondly, do suggest things that does not require the parish priest to do anything. Something the laity or servers could do would be good.
Aside from that, fire away. Your suggestions on how to better worship God will help us in our mission of serving Him.
