Our Priorities

Liturgy

MMACC endeavors to meet the spiritual needs of its members by providing relevant liturgies, substantive homilies and inspiring music, using modern theology and inclusive language.

The intentionality and integrity of our liturgies is our strength and our work. In our collective discernment and decision-making to provide meaningful services, we reflect theologically with pastoral sensitivity; we value social awareness while cultivating beauty; and we draw upon seasonality to form and inform the movement and mood of our Mass while maintaining the one central theme of Eucharist. Benefit to the community and the spiritual edification of all is our aim. Rooted in history and tradition, we move forward with imagination and creativity. Some of our goals:

  • Incorporate children in worship, meaningfully and appropriately,
  • Expand liturgical language to reflect an evolving cosmology,
  • Create special liturgies for notable celebrations,
  • Invite guest homilists for suitable occasions,
  • Enhance music quality and augment the repertoire,
  • Include, when complementary or possible, other sacred scriptures, prose or poetry, and modern day parables,
  • Provide opportunities for contemplative moments during the liturgy.
