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.


A heartfelt THANK YOU to the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and everyone who attended, volunteered, donated, sponsored, and supported in any way the 2017 Annual Convention!
