Liturgy & Worship

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states,

“For the purpose of assisting the work of the common priesthood of the faithful, other particular ministries also exist . . . ‘Servers, readers, commentators, and members of the choir also exercise a genuine liturgical function.’” (CCC #1143)

HOLY DAYS

Every Sunday is considered a day of obligation in the Catholic faith; and the faithful are called to worship at Mass every Sunday.

Other particular days celebrating feasts of the Lord or the Blessed Mother are considered days of obligation. On these days, the faithful are called to worship at Mass, even if the feast does not fall on a Sunday. In the United States, the obligation to attend Mass is suspended, when a Holy Day falls on a Saturday or a Monday.
