Art & Environment
This committee is responsible for creating a mood or atmosphere that helps make our worship space a suitable place for liturgy. Through color, texture and design, a sense of warmth and hospitality is achieved, making St. Francis Xavier an inviting place for all worshipers.
The various seasons of the church year guide how the church is decorated. A core group of people meet to plan the decor with the pastor. The part-time members are asked to assist in implementing the plan at the beginning of Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter/Pentecost. The Advent and Lenten preparations each require about three hours for set-up. Christmas is slightl longer because of decorating the tree. Setting up for the Triduum and for Easter requires a couple of hours a day for each of the individual days of celebration. Easter requires many hands to decorate both the church and the gym.
