liturgy & worship

Updated 5/25/2020

Over the past several weeks, we have spent much time reading, watching, and digesting information from various faith leaders and medical leaders (and the CDC) on when and how to resume in-person worship. Our priority at MMACC is the safety and health of our community - as Jesus called us to love and care for one another.  To that end, we plan to continue indefinitely with online worship and meetings and not gather in-person until it is safe to do so without putting our community at risk or excluding vulnerable members of the community. Read Kori's full pastoral letter here More information can be found on our online liturgy page

Liturgy and worship is at the center of our community life. 

  • We gather online on Sunday nights at 5pm for mass - which lasts about an hour and has music, readings, a homily, and Eucharist. 
  • On Thursdays at 12:15pm, we offer a more intimate liturgy of word and prayer. 
  • We tend to have special liturgies for major events - Martin Luther King Sunday, PRIDE weekend, the Feast of Mary Magdalene, as well as holidays like Christmas and Easter. 

All are truly welcome at our liturgies.

Our scripture readings come from the Comprehensive Catholic Lectionary,

a project undertaken by Jane Via & Nancy Corran. 

Liturgical ministries

There are several ways to get involved in our liturgy: 

  • Consider becoming a lector or part of our livestream liturgy team. Read more here
  • Our liturgy committee is responsible for the planning of our liturgies. They meet once a month to discuss upcoming liturgies. Meetings are open to all - come see what goes into making our liturgy happen. 
  • While we are gathering online, our music is being pre-recorded. If you'd like to be involved with this, contact our Music Director, Malcolm Twentyman
