"The mystery of
the Church is most effectively expressed
in the liturgy. In the liturgy, the Church PARTICIPATES IN CHRIST'S WORK
OF GLORIFYING GOD AND SANCTIFYING THE HUMAN RACE so that those
who believe in Christ and are members of his Church might be
empowered and motivated to proclaim the good news that God has
offered salvation to all in his Son Jesus Christ."
The work of participating in Christ's Work of Glorifying God and Sanctifying the Human Race is the context from which arises the DIOCESAN DEPARTMENT OF DIVINE WORSHIP.
MISSION: TO NURTURE the Sacramental and Liturgical life of the People of God in the Catholic Diocese of Memphis in Tennessee.
