8/18/2015
Last year, Pope Francis called for a renewed commitment to Vatican II’s Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, which defines the Liturgy as “the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed... the fount from which all the Church’s power flows” (CSL 10).

The office is one of 60 ministries supported by the 2015 Diocesan Services Fund (DSF). Read More
