Liturgy and Arts: Our mission, activity and work

The mission of the Commission for Liturgy & the Arts is to be a dynamic liturgical resource for the Bishop, clergy, and parishes in the Diocese of Olympia and beyond. We do this by:

•    fostering vibrant and formative liturgies across the diocese, including but not limited to Diocesan Convention
•    providing access through the Diocesan website to proper liturgies, position papers on liturgical topics, and links to resources for liturgical environment and music
•    offering liturgical trainings throughout the year and referrals to individual liturgical consultants
•    Participating in and promoting liturgical revisions in The Episcopal Church, including but not limited to generating liturgical resources for congregational use, and educating all worship participants about new resources

Four workgroups below are the main focus areas of the commision. In addition, there is a separate Liturgy page with documents from the Office of the Bishop.
