Liturgy

The liturgy is “the outstanding means whereby the faithful may express in their lives, and manifest to others, the mystery of Christ and the real nature of the true Church” (Vatican Council II, 1963, Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy).

Celebrating the liturgy requires careful preparation. The following policy and guidelines, online forms, and resources are presented to support those responsible for the preparation of liturgy in the Diocese of Wollongong.
