The Eucharist is the center of Christian life for the Church and the outstanding means whereby the faithful may express in their lives and manifest to others the mystery of Christ. It is at the heart of all parish life, making the liturgy committee and its ministry among the highest priorities in any parish.
The primary role of the liturgy committee is to focus on the full range of the parish's liturgical life and to represent the consensus of the community in matters related to that liturgical life. It has a mandate to ensure that celebrations are planned in such a way that they lead to a conscious, active and full participation of the faithful both in body and in mind, "as demanded by the very nature of the celebration and to which the Christian people have a right and duty by reason of their Baptism". The actual details of planning liturgical celebrations should be left to those people whom we have engaged for specific liturgical ministries in our parish (music, décor, hospitality, and so on).

"For it is in the liturgy, especially in the divine sacrifice of the Eucharist, that 'the work of redemption is accomplished', and it is through the liturgy especially the faithful are enabled to express in their lives and manifest to others the mystery of Christ and the real nature of the true Church" Sacrosanctum Concilium#2
Catechesis is the education in the faith of children, young people and adults which includes especially the teaching of Christian doctrine imparted, generally speaking, in an organic and systematic way, with a view to initiating the hearers into the fullness of Christian life." Catechism of the Catholic Church#5
"Christian charity truly extends to all, without distinction of race, creed, or social condition: it looks for neither gain nor gratitude...Just as Christ, then, went about all the towns and villages, curing every kind of disease and infirmity as a sign that the kingdom of God had come (cf. Matt. 9:35ff; Acts 10:38), so also the Church, through her children, is one with men of every condition, but especially with the poor and the afflicted." Decree
(Ad Gentes) on the Mission Activity of the Church #12

"The consecrated life, through the prompting of the Holy Spirit, "constitutes a closer imitation and an abiding re-enactment in the Church"of the way of life which Jesus, the supreme Consecrated One and missionary of the Father for the sake of his Kingdom, embraced and proposed to his disciples (cf. Mt 4:18-22; Mk 1:16-20; Lk 5:10-11; Jn 15:16)."
#22, Vita Consecrata, March 25, 1996
“In those days he departed to the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer to God. When day came, he called his disciples to himself, and from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named apostles: Simon, whom he named Peter, and his brother Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon who was called a Zealot, and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.” Luke 6,12-16
