SUBJECT: BOOK OF RITES
Dear Fathers, Monsignori, Brothers and Sisters:
Greetings of peace!
In 2015, the Diocesan Commission on Liturgy and Popular Religiosity embarked on the project of compiling the most commonly used rites for the celebration of the sacraments and Sacramentals in our parish communities. We initiated this endeavor in response to our pastors who requested for a handy guide for both presiders and congregations in properly celebrating the liturgy in our communities in the Diocese of Parañaque.
Today, I am presenting to Your Reverence and your community the Diocesan Book of Rites. We have decided to distribute this book in PDF form in order for the parish to publish their own copy / copies of the rites, thus allowing them to prepare only the necessary number of copies at reasonable cost.
We would like to thank the members of the DCLPR for helping us out in compiling and preparing this book. We hope that this will be of great help to our pastors and liturgical ministers in order that our celebration of the mysteries of the Lord may be done with reverence, piety and active participation.
Let us continue to work together for the greater glory of God.
