Worship and Prayer
“Pray constantly” (1 Thess.
The mission of the Office of Sacred Liturgy is to aid in fostering the proper understanding and celebration of the liturgy among the People of God of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington, especially through pastoral-liturgical development, formation and education. The Office serves also as a resource for the clergy and laity of the Diocese in matters concerning the proper planning and celebration of the sacraments and other liturgical rites of the Church.
God continually draws all
persons to Himself, and we respond to this call through public worship and
personal prayer. In the life of the Church, prayer (both public and
private) expresses our adoration, thanksgiving, petition and contrition before
God and unites us to Him in a bond of love, a vital and personal relationship
with the Holy Trinity.
