"From the liturgy, therefore, and especially from the Eucharist, as from a font, grace is poured forth upon us; and the sanctification of men in Christ and the glorification of God, to which all other activities of the Church are directed as toward their end, is achieved in the most efficacious possible way."
(Sacrosanctum Concilium, #10)
All Catholics are called to participate in the Liturgical life of the Church. We all go to Mass, many of us go to weddings, funerals, ordinations, baptisms, and more. To be a part of the Church means that we participate in the liturgy. Some of us are called to assist in specific ways as liturgical ministers.
What is included here are general liturgical resources to help you grow in your understanding of the Liturgy, especially the Mass and then specific resources for parish liturgical ministers.
We know that there is an overwhelming amount of resources out there and that it might be hard to know where to start. Our office wants to make it easier for you and so has compiled a list of resources at all stages of your ministry (Getting Started, Growing, and Going Deeper). To obtain our list of resources for Liturgy and Liturgical Ministers, simply click HERE.
Over the course of the year the Office of Formation for Discipleship holds various training and formation days for those involved in ministry. Please see our website for upcoming Formation Opportunities.
If you have questions about these resources, formation and training opportunities, or other things related to the liturgy please contact Rebecca Spellacy at 416.934.3400, etx. 525 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
