We aim to support all those involved in Liturgical ministry through Training, Education and Formation.
Liturgy involves the celebration of the Sacraments, especially the Eucharist. It also involves the Prayer of the Church, such as Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer, Funerals as well as the other sacraments, and other official celebrations.
The Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, the first document of the Second Vatican Council, speaks of the liturgy as the source and summit of the Christian life,(art.10). This means that what we celebrate in the Liturgy is a taste of heaven. It is what all our life is directed towards and we also draw strength from it.
The aim of the Diocesan Liturgy Office is to try and support all those involved in the many ministries in our liturgy mndful of Vatican II which stated that: The Church earnestly desires that all the faithful be led to that full, conscious, and active participation in liturgical celebrations called for by the very nature of liturgy.
In the coming months you will be able to access resources and information on all aspects of liturgy relevant to the particular time of year.
