Office of Worship

The Office for Worship of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland is a liturgical resource and guide for the bishop, the clergy and the lay faithful of the diocese. The office serves as a central place of work through which liturgical needs can be addressed. It is responsible for the liturgical planning and implementation of the bishop’s diocesan liturgies such as the Rite of Election, the Chrism Mass and ordinations.

The Office of Worship offers information for parishes and individuals in the area of worship, the liturgical seasons, sacramental celebrations, art and environment, music, prayer and spirituality.
