Worship Space

Seasonal Environment

In every church building, art and architecture become the joint work of the Holy Spirit and the local community, in preparing a place to receive God’s Word and to enter more fully into communion with God. Through workshops in this field, the Office for Worship offers instruction on how to shape and decorate the worship space of the church in a way that reflects the prayerfulness of the season while maintaining the dignity and beauty “suited to sacred celebrations.”

The Office for Worship maintains a regular schedule of training in this ministry, but also is available upon request for training.
For further information on either of these programs, please contact the Office for Worship: 213-637-7262 or OFWMailbox@la-archdiocese.org.
