Office for Divine Worship
The ministry of Worship seeks to make liturgy the source of spiritual growth and development of the Church in the Diocese of Lubbock. It is the responsibility of the Office for Worship to assist the Bishop in his role as the principal liturgist of the Diocese. The Office for Worship fulfills this responsibility by addressing liturgical matters on the diocesan level and recommending policy, practice, and catechesis in the area of worship and sacramental life in cooperation with various diocesan departments. The Office provides guidance so that developmental steps may be taken to lead the faithful to a full, conscious, and active participation in the liturgical life of the Church. A multi-faceted ministry, it includes:
- the promotion of divine worship and liturgical music as vital to our prayer in full accord with the directives of the Church;
- discovering art and architecture which helps to create good environments for worship and spirituality;
- assistance in the preparation of good liturgical celebrations with an eye to nurturing faith in all those participating.
The Office for Worship serves as a resource center for liturgical ministry materials, ministry formation and consultation.
