The Office of Liturgy is authorized to oversee and assist in planning archdiocesan liturgies and is to contribute to the planning of liturgies involving the archbishop of Denver and the auxiliary bishop. It is also responsible for approving plans for parish liturgies at which the archbishop or his auxiliary bishop will preside or celebrate and is their representative in that planning. In addition, educational programs, including those involved with RCIA, liturgical ministries and ethnic ministries are encouraged to consult with the Office of Liturgy in order to provide the faithful with a cohesive and current liturgical education.
Liturgies During Autumn 2013
The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary: Because it falls on a Sunday, in which case the Sunday of Advent takes precedence, the Solemnity is transferred this year to Monday, December 9. Because of the transfer, December 9 is not a Holy Day of Obligation this year. This is the only situation in which December 8 does not retain the obligation to attend Mass.
