One of the fruits of the renewal of the liturgy after the Second Vatican Council has been an experience of and reflection on the primary role of the assembly. What does it mean to gather as an assembly for worship? Liturgical ministers, including the presider, are still part of the assembly, though few recognize this as a vocation. This book was designed to be used by members of parish worship commissions and by anyone involved in liturgical ministry. Use this book to help parishioners come to a deeper understanding and appreciation of what it means to be a member of the assembly gathered for worship. Short chapters with documentation and questions make this book ideal for study and discussion. Published by Liturgy Training Publications.
