The A&E Core Team sets the direction for the appearance of our worship space throughout the liturgical year.  The ability to be creative while still being mindful of time, personnel, and budget is key!  Core Team members facilitate environment changes for smaller holy days and holidays, as well as direct seasonal ministers for major holidays, and should be generally available around these times.  Specific schedules are determined after outlining the work needing to be completed.


  •         Flower Arrangers - The generosity of our parish community makes it so we can enjoy fresh flowers throughout the year, and this division of our Art & Environment ministry helps make that happen!  Arrangers select fresh flowers each week at our vendor’s location, then use them to create new floral arrangements to adorn the altar and ambo for weekend Masses.  Work takes place on Thursday or Friday, and Arrangers should be able to provide their own transportation.


  •         Seasonal Setup Teams - Decorating for Christmas and Easter is a big job, and Seasonal Setup Teams work with the A&E Core Team to make it faster and easier.  Setup Team members help with a variety of tasks, from moving and placing materials, steaming stored fabrics, to “sprucing up” regular furnishings for the occasion.  Specific skills such as sewing or light building may also be needed at times, but enthusiasm is more important that any particular talent or skill!  Schedules and sign-ups are posted well in advance of each workday, so you can participate as your time and interest permits.
