The purpose of the Art and Environment Ministry is in charge of the beautification of St. Norbert and providing an environment for worship that awakens the presence of God. This Ministry Ministry decorates the church and grounds, following the Liturgical calendar, to help parishioners recognize events through colors and décor.
General responsibilities include decorating the sanctuary year-around and providing special decorations for major liturgical events such as Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Outsides areas are also decorated during special occasions. The Art & Environment Ministers ensure the total worship environment is clean, appropriate, authentic, beautiful and accessible.
Art & Environment Ministry Time Commitment
- Attendance at all events is appreciated, yet not required.
- The A & E Ministry sets up and takes down decorations in the church for: Advent, Christmas, Lent, Palm Sunday and Easter.

How to become an Art & Environment Ministry Member

We need volunteers who can climb ladders to hang greenery as well as help with watering plants and shining brass. Volunteer opportunities and meeting times are varied. Many hands are needed to transform the church on special occasions.
