Office of Worship Resources

The Office of Worship for the Diocese of St. Petersburg is established to be a resource to pastors and parish staffs in the development and evaluation of the liturgy.  In collaboration with the Diocesan Liturgical Commission – advisors appointed by the Bishop – the Office of Worship has developed a variety of resources that can be used at the local level or with our assistance.

  1. A bulletin insert describing “How Catholics Receive Holy Communion” at Mass.
    Reception of Holy Communion
    Recepción de la Sagrada Comunión
  2. A liturgy evaluation tool to assist parish liturgy committees in evaluating their Sunday celebrations of Mass.  This tool is based upon the General Instruction on the Roman Missal (3rd typical edition) © 2002.
    Evaluation of the Celebration of Mass
    Evaluacion de la Celebracion de la Misa
  3. LIVING EUCHARIST: Gathered, Nourished, Sent is a 27-page pastoral letter promulgated by Most Rev. Robert N. Lynch, Bishop of St. Petersburg, on November 25, 2007 as part of his three-year diocesan initiative on the Eucharist.  Not only does it provide a readable theological reflection on the celebration of the Eucharist, it also includes suggestions for pastoral application and a set of study questions.  There also is a companion video presentation.
