The members often play an active role during the Liturgy as readers, servers, or Liturgy assistants. In addition, the committee plans prayer services throughout the school year, especially for the seasons of Advent and Lent.

They meet monthly and plan ways to promote the mission in daily life at IWA. The Mission Committee leads some annual service projects at IWA: collecting blankets for Missouri Energy Care, participating in World Food Day to package meals for local & international hunger relief, volunteering in The Knights of Columbus Tootsie Roll Drive to assist persons who have developmental disabilities, and co-sponsoring IWA's Mission Carnival to raise funds for a specifically chosen program. The committee also remains open to other ways to promote and live the mission of Jesus at IWA and everywhere else.
