The Liturgy Office works closely with the Bishop of Hamilton to ensure that all liturgical rites that take place in Parishes and other institutions within the Diocese are celebrated in accord with the approved liturgical books and in a manner which fosters full, conscious and active participation. The Chancery Office staff coordinates all diocesan liturgical celebrations, provides formation opportunities for all liturgical ministers in the Diocese, and serves the parishes in a consultative capacity.
