The Worship Commission seeks to assist each person and community to grow, as followers of Christ, in the love of God, in prayer and holiness, and discipleship. The worship Commission assists the Archbishop in his role as chief pastor and liturgist. It makes recommendations to the Archbishop regarding pastoral liturgical matters in the Archdiocese. Following his approval, the implementation of policy is the responsibility of the Office of Worship.
