Notre Dame Center for Liturgy

Mission Statement


The Notre Dame Center for Liturgy, situated within the McGrath Institute for Church Life, promotes the liturgical renewal of the Church through scholarship and pastoral education.  We believe liturgical renewal includes:

  • A deeper understanding of the mysteries signified by liturgical action.

  • A prayerful and thoughtful performance of liturgical rites.

  • A connection between liturgical prayer and the Christian life.
