Archdiocesan Worship Commission

A primary responsibility of the Archbishop as the chief liturgist is to ensure a well-formed liturgical life for the people of God. This well-formed liturgical life is achieved only when the full, active, and conscious participation of the people of God comes to fruition. To accomplish this goal, it must be acknowledged that the Commission must also serve the needs of those who participate in promoting the liturgical apostolate such as pastors, parochial vicars, deacons, lay-liturgical ministers, RCIA directors, and the other faithful who participate in the liturgy.

The Commission’s role then is to support the Archbishop in his role as chief liturgist of the Archdiocese of Detroit and promoter of the Church’s liturgical life.
