Cardinal Dinardo calls Catholics back to Mass in the New Year

The ministry of Worship seeks to make liturgy the source of spiritual growth and development of the Church in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.

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 help 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 of Worship serves as a resource center for liturgical ministry materials, ministry formation, and consultation.
