New Trainings required 2019
July 22, 2019
Dear Veteran, CCUP Liturgical Minister,
For most people it has been many years since going through the training to become a liturgical minister here at Corpus Christi University Parish. With this in mind, we are asking all our liturgical ministers to attend a re-training session for each of the liturgical ministries you are involved in. Fr. Jeremy has been here for two years and would like to communicate to all the different ministries some things that he has observed, a theology of that ministry as well as some changes he would like to incorporate. There would be two parts of this re-training. The first part would be for both our new and veteran liturgical ministers and the second part would be for only the new liturgical ministers. Please see below the dates and times of the sessions. You only need to attend one session for each of the ministries you are involved in. If you are unable to attend, please let me know and I will make other arrangements to meet with you. Since we have over 200 liturgical ministers you can imagine that it would be very helpful if you could attend a session(s) listed below for each of your ministries. Please know that your willingness to contribute to the vitality of our Masses is very much appreciated.
Thank you very much,
Pam Meseroll, Parish Manager
