New resource forms all parishioners in their liturgical ministry

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 16, 2008—Resource Publications announces the publication of a new book intended for all parishioners, The Ministry of the Assembly.

Vatican II calls the assembly to "full, active, conscious participation." What exactly does that mean? This book explores the liturgy and clearly explains the ministry of the members of the assembly at each point. How is it a ministry? What are we supposed to do? When? It explains the assembly's role by looking at its history and it encourages understanding by identifying items used in liturgy, such as vessels, vestments and colors. It briefly looks at the seasons.  It's a "how-to" book with inspiration.  It establishes the assembly as an important liturgical symbol and ministry in itself.

This book gives an overview of the liturgy and a step-by-step guide to catechize everyone on the most important ministry in liturgy, the ministry of the assembly. Designed for all who participate in liturgy, it is a perfect gift for those entering the church as catechumens or candidates. With bulk pricing, it can be made available to all the members of a parish to inspire them to greater understanding and participation.

Caroline Thomas has a master’s degree in pastoral liturgy from Santa Clara University. She  has worked in parishes as a liturgist for over 14 years and continues to be excited by the transformative potential of the liturgy.
