The Office also provides days of reflection for parish liturgical ministers (upon request).

The Office publishes a number of liturgy preparation resources and guidelines to assist musicians and other pastoral ministers in the preparation of liturgical celebrations (e.g. And the Two Shall Become One, Guidelines for Adoration and Exposition, Liturgy of the Hours, Preparing Funeral Liturgies, and This Holy and Living Sacrifice).  Go to “ODWS Publications” as well as “Resources” for more information.

The Office assists national offices with liturgical celebrations to be held in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. (i.e. NPM National Convention, NACPA National Convocation)
