Liturgical Committee


Welcome to the Holy Cross Liturgical Committee web site. What do we do and who we are? The Liturgical Committee works to support our pastor in the celebration of the liturgy. At the Lord's Supper, our parishioners are called together by our pastor to celebrate the memorial of the Lord, the Eucharistic Sacrifice. When a liturgy is celebrated with a congregation, the celebrant needs additional ministers to perform varied rituals within the liturgy. The Liturgical Committee provides this support through the following ministries:

Pastor: Father Andrew Santamauro O.F.M. CONV.
Permanent Deacon: Rev. Phil Rzewnicki
Chairperson: Gloria Burton
Recorder: Bernice Bergup
Coordinators, Directors and President of Liturgical Ministries

  • Altar Servers: Jackie Ellis, Co-Coordinators
  • Altar Society: Sharon Baker, President
  • Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers: Fr. Andy Santomauro
  • Intercessory Prayers: James Siewert, Coordinator
  • Musicians: Gloria Burton and Sister Janet Schemell, Directors
  • Readers: Christine Cameron, Coordinator
  • Sacristans: Judy Gardiner and Helen Hudson, Co-Coordinators
  • Special Liturgies: Barbara Ellis, Coordinator, All Members
  • Ushers: Ronald Paterson, Coordinator

Each of the above leaders and ministry members contribute to the overall decorum and spirituality of our liturgies. Each leader is responsible for recruiting, training, and supplying ministers to fulfill their respective roles especially at Saturday, Sunday, Holy Days of Obligation and other special liturgies.
