Music Guidelines for Eucharistic Celebrations

OFW Guidelines
“Christ himself becomes the choir director who teaches us the new song and gives the Church the tone and way in which she can praise God appropriately and blend into the heavenly liturgy.”

-(A New Song for the Lord, n.97)

The Office for Worship has prepared the following guidelines for Music Guidelines for Eucharistic Celebrations.

The purpose of these guidelines is to provide some general observations and principles on this important ministry of the Church. For a smooth functioning of this ministry, the needs of the faith community must be taken into account. These guidelines define the contents of the liturgical law on this matter, the demands of a good Eucharistic liturgy, and the expectations of the universal and local Church.
