Material Overview

Living Liturgy combines essential liturgical content with the supreme presentation for deeper study of the Sunday readings.


About the Program

Living Liturgy is the indispensable resource that supports parish ministers of all types in preparing well for the celebration of Mass for Sundays, solemnities, and select other days, so that celebrating the liturgy and living a liturgical spirituality go hand-in-hand. Written by a pastorally experienced team with expertise in Scripture, spiritual direction, liturgy, and liturgical music, Living Liturgy integrates daily living, prayer and study.


Anyone involved with liturgical planning and preparation will benefit from this comprehensive resource, including pastoral ministers, liturgy directors, musicians, and liturgy committee members. Living Liturgy also assists those who serve the community in the visible liturgical ministries—presiders, deacons, music ministers, hospitality ministers, altar ministers, lectors, extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion—because it clearly shows that each ministry deserves not only practical preparation but, even more important, spiritual preparation.


Catechumens, candidates, and sponsors use Living Liturgy to support and deepen their liturgical journey within the RCIA. Members of faith-sharing groups use this resource as the focus of weekly prayer and reflection. Parents and teachers will find that Living Liturgy can be simplified and shared with younger members of the liturgical community.
