The Good Shepherd Liturgy Commission plans and provides for the spiritual development of each member of the community through liturgical celebrations.

“Liturgical actions are not private actions but celebrations of the Church itself, which is the ‘sacrament of unity,’ namely, a holy people assembled and ordered under the bishops; therefore, liturgical actions pertain to the whole body of the Church and manifest and affect it, but they affect the individual members of the Church in different ways according to the diversity of orders, functions, and actual participation.”
(Canon No. 837, #1)
