Welcome To Liturgy Canada

Liturgy Canada is a society of men and women committed to the ongoing renewal of the Church in worship and mission.  Our ministry is to provide resources which focus the debate, inform our practice, and evaluate our experience. In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the number and availability of liturgical resources. Changing technologies are presenting challenges and opportunities for our parish churches, as does the ongoing exchange of liturgies between Canadian Lutherans and Anglicans. The publication Liturgy Canada has a prominent place in our work of sharing ideas around liturgy.

About Us

Liturgy Canada is made up of mainly Anglicans and Lutherans from across the country.  The Executive Committee also includes Roman Catholic and Mennonite members.
