Liturgy is the word we use in the Church to denote acts of worship and prayer that are carried out in public by members of the faith community. The celebration of the Sacraments, and in particular the Eucharist, are the most common expressions of Liturgy in our parishes. The term liturgy can be used to describe any public gathering of the people for prayer.
It can include things like prayer services in parishes and schools, missions and novenas, penitential services in Advent and Lent and so on. Liturgy acknowledges our need to come together with others as part of the Christian Community to offer praise and worship to God.
Liturgy can help nourish our personal lives of prayer as well. The rituals we celebrate as part of the Church can help us to connect our worship of God with the everyday lived experience of our lives. In this section of the websites we hope to gather resources that may be of use to you and your community. Please remember that if you have a liturgy that was effective and meaningful for you and would like to share it with others send it to us at (insert address) and we will offer it to others.
