The Office of Liturgy supports the work of our Bishop as chief liturgist of the Diocese:


  • Modeling and supporting a vision of the Liturgy as set forth by the Second Vatican Council.
  • Promoting the "full, conscious, and active participation" of our people.
  • Encouraging the gifts of our rich diversity as a multicultural Church.
  • Collaboration with the Bishop's office and other Diocesan offices in preparing Diocesan liturgies.
  • Assisting parishes through resources, guidelines, workshops, and responding to questions.
  • Administering the Rochester NPM Chapter (National Association of Pastoral Musicians.)
  • Maintaining the resources of our Liturgy Library as a lending library for parish staffs.
