The Liturgical Commission
The Liturgical Commission has 8 members, appointed by the Archbishop:
- Several members have their Certificate in Pastoral Liturgy from St. Paul University
- one member is on staff at Summer Institutes in Pastoral Liturgy and Religious Education at St. Paul University
- one member is a graduate of the MLPA
- most have attended many of the Atlantic Liturgical Congresses
While diocesan-wide representation is ideal, and in fact is mandated, at most times it has been very difficult to achieve. At the moment all but 2 members come from the St. John's and Mount Pearl area.
We are constantly searching for more members willing to serve.
The Archdiocesan Liturgical Commission is appointed by the Archbishop to foster, promote and implement good pastoral liturgy throughout the Archdiocese.
At present this position is vacant. Reverend William Pomroy is Director Emeritus
There is no Liturgical Commission Office at the Pastoral Centre. However, one of the commission members will return calls made to the Pastoral Centre and respond to mail.
In justice, it is important that we support the artists who compose the lyrics and music used in all our liturgies. That means ensuring that they get the royalty fees to which they are entitled and need. There is also a legal requirement to observe the copyright laws.
The CCCB Publications Service has issued a very good and complete document entitled Rights and Permission Policy.
Revisit the CCCB site periodically to ensure you have the latest version of the policy
