The mission of the Office for Liturgy and Sacramental Life is to resource and guide pastors and parishes in the areas of liturgical formation, liturgical preparation, celebration, and evaluation, liturgical spirituality, and sacramental life, in order to deepen awareness of our Catholic sacramental identity, and promote ways in which this identity may find expression in daily life.
In addition, the Office for Liturgy and Sacramental Life serves as a liturgical consultant to Archbishop Naumann, and coordinates and directs the preparation, celebration and evaluation of the liturgical celebrations of the archdiocese.

The Big Picture
“The Church, therefore, earnestly desires that Christ's faithful, when present at this mystery of faith, should not be there as strangers or silent spectators; on the contrary, through a good understanding of the rites and prayers they should take part in the sacred action conscious of what they are doing, with devotion and full collaboration. They should be instructed by God's word and be nourished at the table of the Lord's body; they should give thanks to God; by offering the Immaculate Victim, not only through the hands of the priest, but also with him, they should learn also to offer themselves; through Christ the Mediator, they should be drawn day by day into an ever more perfect union with God and with each other, so that, finally, God may be all in all.”
