Diocesan Liturgical Commission

The Diocesan Liturgical Commission in its present form began on 4th February 2016.

The work of the Commission has always focused on people and liturgy in its attempts to serve those in the Diocese who are involved in liturgical celebrations.

The Commission aims to empower and energise us into full, active and conscious participation in the liturgy and other communal prayer forms. The Commission endeavours to provide resources, to organize and offer formation workshops for those with responsibility for liturgy, to establish networks between parishes and the Commission, and to keep abreast of current trends in liturgy. The Commissionis directly responsible to the Bishop in its role of service to the people of the diocese.
