The Liturgical Heritage of the Church Abroad
The liturgical life of the Church is central to the human creature’s experience of divine life and love, echoing on earth, by God’s direct command, the eternal worship of heaven. Orthodoxy’s worshipping practice is amongst her most sacred inheritances from the Apostles and saints, and she maintains her unchanging doctrine within this timeless sacramental reality.
Our Diocese is particularly committed to the education amongst clergy and laity of the rich heritage of the liturgical tradition of our Church Abroad. The resources in this area are meant to articulate, clearly and helpfully, elements of this tradition within the context of a world in which many other traditions are seen, that we may cling all the more fervently to the unique heritage entrusted to us by our Fathers.
