Office of Divine Worship

The Office of Divine Worship provides liturgical resources for pastors and parishes, aiding them to implement the vision of the Church's Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy regarding "full, conscious and active participation" in the public prayer of the Church.

This mission is accomplished through:
• Providing consultative service to pastors and other parish leaders regarding liturgical issues;
• Sponsoring periodic workshops on liturgical formation;
• Working with the bishop regarding liturgical matters;
• Assisting the bishop with the planning and execution of special ceremonies;
