Public Resources

With input from experts in liturgy from across the country, FDLC offers publications and resources to aid in the authentic implementation and celebration of the liturgy. They can assist parish staffs and diocesan commissions in training liturgical ministers, preparing parish and diocesan liturgies, and authentically celebrating the sacramental rites.

Seasonal Public Resources

A wide variety of resources to help you, your diocese, and your parishes to celebrate the liturgical seasons more fully, including Advent, Christmas, Sunday of the Word of God, Lent, Easter, and remembering the dead throughout November.

Synodal Process Resources

On October 11, the Church celebrated the memorial of Saint John XXIII, Pope. This date was chosen since it is the day on which he opened the Second Vatican Council in 1962. Nearly sixty years hence and not unlike Saint John XXIII, Pope Francis is calling forth the voices of the Church.

Year of Saint Joseph 2021

In a new Apostolic Letter entitled Patris corde (“With a Father’s Heart”), Pope Francis describes Saint Joseph as a beloved father, a tender and loving father, an obedient father, an accepting father. The Letter marks the 150th anniversary of Blessed Pope Pius IX’s declaration of St Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. To celebrate the anniversary, Pope Francis has proclaimed a special “Year of St Joseph,” beginning on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception 2020 and extending to the same feast in 2021.
