General Description

The Office for Worship is a resource for Diocese parishes, schools, offices and institutions with respect to
music, sacramental celebrations, devotional practices and liturgical formation. The Office oversees the
implementation of the Rites of Christian Initiation (RCIA): the process for children over the age of
reason (generally 8 years or older) to become Catholic through baptism or reception into full communion
(those baptized in another faith tradition who wish to join the Catholic Church).  Other
responsibilities include planning and coordinating Episcopal liturgies at which the bishop presides and
assist the bishop in approving any renovations, remodeling or construction of churches or worship
