There is an intimate link between life and liturgy. We must explore and advance the development of liturgical ministries in the diocese. The core thrust of the vote was towards enhancing the quality and experience of liturgy at a local level achieving ‘conscious, active and full’ participation.

The development of local capacity for leadership in liturgy was a key enabler for this – both for liturgies led by clergy and by lay people.
