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.
