Office of Divine Worship

Greetings and Blessings,
As we continue in these uncertain times, we know that one certainty remains – Christ is with us.

“And behold, I am with you always”   Matthew 28:20                                          

The Office of Divine Worship is working diligently to keep you informed of the latest developments regarding changes in liturgy and worship as they are issued from our office and the office of our Bishop in line with the directives from the Holy Father, the Sacred Congregation of Divine Worship, and the  USCCB. We will be placing all important directives below with the most recent updates on the top for ease of access. Please know we share your concern and desire to continue to minister to your flock. We ask for your patience and prayers as we all continue through this unusual time and we welcome your questions via phone or email.

Shaun Johnson, Director of Divine Worship and MC


Liturgical Updates

  • All Souls' Day Celebration: An Outreach of Hope to the Community 
    As a way for our parishes and the faithful of Green Bay to join together, especially in this year that has proven to be somewhat difficult and unpredictable, the Parish Life and Evangelization Mission Team of the Diocese has created a special resource that may be used for communal prayer on the Feast of All Souls.  Please see the resource below for a bit of background on the Feast and some ideas and resources for prayer.  If you have any questions, please contact Heidi Rosenthal, 920-272-8329 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • Optional Memorial of Our Lady of Loreto Liturgical Supplements   
    Optional Memorial of “Our Lady of Loreto” was added to the Universal Calendar on November 1, 2019 by Pope Francis, but does not currently have Propers translated in English.  While we await the approved translations, parishes may use the Mass texts from the Commons of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Advent.  The citation in the Lectionary is no. 689-B

Our Purpose

The Office of Divine Worship, part of the Parish Life and Evangelization Mission Team, works to provide liturgical and catechumenal (RCIA) resources for parishes, formation opportunities, and overall support for the liturgical and sacramental life of the parishes and agencies of the Diocese. In serving Bishop Ricken as the chief liturgist of the Diocese The Office also coordinates Diocesan and Episcopal liturgies throughout the year.

We recognize the vital role of worship within our Christian identity as we and our worshiping communities continue to be formed as true disciples of Christ through 'full, active, and conscious participation' in liturgy and our rich tradition of prayer.
