Worship

Worship is central to who we are and what we do as Catholics. We believe in an all-powerful and omniscient God who is worthy of praise and worship. And so we are called to “Keep holy the Sabbath Day” – to join in praise and worship of God each weekend in our churches.

Our celebration of the Mass is a re-presentation of Jesus’ sacrifice on Calvary. Vatican II teaches us that the Eucharist is the “source and summit” of our faith. Through our participation in the Eucharist, we are in communion with God, the angels and saints, and one another.

According to the Encyclopedia of Catholicism, in its Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, Vatican II “. . .situated the dying and rising of Christ at the center of all worship. . . It called for a full, conscious and active participation of all the faithful in the liturgy, and a reform of worship so that it would be more accessible to peoples of every culture.”
