Art and Environment is a Liturgical Ministry charged with the important task of adorning the Church to create an atmosphere appropriate for each liturgical season. This ministry is under the direction of Kim Jacobson.
The Art and Environment Ministry sets a mood that invites participation in the mystery of the liturgical event. In fulfilling this purpose, we consider the liturgical seasons, the readings, feast days, and Parish celebrations. Our goals are to use meaningful symbols that foster attention on the actions of the liturgy, to decorate without distracting, and to create new mediums while respecting traditions of the past.
Members of Art and Environment donate their time and talent in a variety of ways. Examples include designing and creating new banners and Altar cloths; organizing storage containers and the storage room; coordinating volunteers for large-scale decorating projects; creating and organizing the overall decorating plan; plant care (watering, pruning, fertilizing); arranging flowers; working with materials; cleanup duties; general chores.
Additionally, A&E provides a wonderful opportunity for those seeking volunteer hours. Confirmation and National Honor Society candidates, Scouts, etc. have historically earned many service hours working with the team. Interested volunteers should contact the Parish Office.
