Welcome to the Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions representing Roman Catholic Diocesan Offices of Worship and Liturgical Commissions throughout the United States and supporting the liturgical apostolate.
National Meeting 2014
The National Meeting of the Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions was held October 1 through 3, 2014. Co-sponsored by the FDLC and the Bishops' Committee on Divine Worship, this event included a consultation on the USCCB's National Statues on the Catechumenate.
A press release is now available regarding this National Meeting.
At the heart of discussion was the results of a recent study on pastoral practice of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. To see the questions contained in this survey, follow this link.
The Forum Legacy Grant Program
Due to financial constraints, the Forum ceased operations in June 2013. So that the mission of providing ongoing formation for leaders in Christian initiation may continue, the Board of Directors of the North American Forum on the Catechumenate entrusted its remaining funds to the FDLC for the establishment of the Forum Legacy Grant Program (FLGP). The FLGP will provide annual grants to diocesan worship and/or catechetical offices in the United States and Canada to subsidize diocesan-sponsored formation programs for those responsible for Christian initiation in parishes. For more information, follow this link: GRANTS.
Supporting the Federation through the Annual Appeal
To further this
mission we need your help. The success of the FDLC relies not only on
the dues of member dioceses, but also on your generous support.
