“There are different gifts but the same Spirit,
there are different ministries but the same Lord …
To each person the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.”
1 Corinthians, 12:4-7
Every person is called to contribute to the liturgy in a manner suited to his or her unique talents. It takes the help of many people serving in a variety of different liturgical ministries to help the liturgy flow smoothly and enable the participation of the assembly.
