Liturgy Guide

The Sunday Liturgy of the Eucharist is fundamental to the faith journey of Catholics. In the liturgical calendar there are Sunday Mass themes, based on the scripture readings and devotions, which align well with the messages of “Faith: Love It, Learn It, Live It.”  The Liturgy Team is thoughtfully reviewing the liturgical calendar and developing a Liturgy Guide as a resource for planning and preparing for the Sunday liturgy.

Pray, Proclaim, Profess and Praise

“We Pray, Proclaim, Profess and Praise” is a publication being created by our archdiocese, which will include suggestions and ideas to consider as you plan the Sunday liturgy. Topics include: Music, Thoughts for Homilists, and Prayers of the Faithful. Some weekends will have an emphasis that ties to “Faith: Love It, Learn It, Live It” and others will have the existing liturgical calendar focus. There will be an edition of “We Pray, Proclaim, Profess and Praise” for every Sunday. Parishes will be sent a package that covers a range of consecutive Sunday liturgies.

NOTE: As of March 1, 2013, the Liturgy Guide sections will no longer be mailed to the parishes. To curtail costs, the documents will be available to download, print and insert into your binder from the links below.
