Divine Worship and Sacraments

Welcome to the Office for Divine Worship and Sacraments! The purpose of this office for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati is to serve as a central location through which the liturgical needs of the Archdiocese can be addressed. The office devotes its efforts to offering liturgical, theological, pastoral, canonical, and historical guidance in the celebration of the Church’s liturgical rites.

The Office for Divine Worship and Sacraments primarily serves pastors, parish musicians and staff persons, parish worship commissions, and parish members by providing consultation and resources in the areas of liturgy, RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults), environment and art, music, and the sacraments.

Upcoming Programs

RCIA Fitness Camp:  Training for RCIA Ministers – Aug. 17-18
This program offers RCIA teams the opportunity to reflect on the implementation of the RCIA process in their parish.  Through brief presentations on the periods and rites and using an RCIA evaluation tool to engender conversations, RCIA  teams will assess their “fitness” and consider ways of “achieving fitness” as they implement the RCIA in their parish.  Use these links to find the workshop flyer and online registration!

RCIA Workshop: Condition Critical! with Msgr. Michael Clay – Part II – Saturday, September 8 – St. John the Evangelist, West Chester (9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.).  Click here for information and registration.
