Today’s question: Praying with Liturgical Ministers

Do liturgical ministers in your community pray together before liturgy? How? Who leads it? Does the celebrant bring everyone together for this before the procession?

Do you pray before or after choir rehearsals? Or training sessions for liturgical ministers? What type or style of prayer? Are there published resources for this you recommend?

Moderator’s note: “Non solum” is a feature at Pray Tell for our readership community to discuss practical liturgical issues. The title comes from article 11 of the Vatican II liturgy constitution Sacrosanctum Concilium: “Therefore there is to be vigilance among holy pastors that in liturgical action not only are laws for valid and licit celebration to be observed, but that the faithful should participate knowingly, actively, and fruitfully.” (Ideo sacris pastoribus advigilandum est ut in actione liturgica non solum observentur leges ad validam et licitam celebrationem, sed ut fideles scienter, actuose et fructuose eandem participent.) May the series contribute to good liturgical practice – not only following the law, but especially grasping the spirit of the liturgy!
