Office of Worship


The Office of Worship is a resource in providing assistance to parishes and other diocesan offices seeking advice or direction in planning and executing liturgies. Our office coordinates Diocesan Episcopal liturgies at the Cathedral and assists in planning for parochial liturgies when the Bishop is present. We also facilitate ongoing liturgical catechesis, ministry formation and training, and provide notices and publications concerning liturgy to the diocese.





The Season of Lent is the traditional time for fasting, prayer, and charity in preparation for the great celebration of the Resurrection at Easter. The Diocese of Oakland has resources for Lent available for parishes and individuals. Just browse through the "Lenten Resources" area on the right panel of this website. For more information or resources, please call our Office. God Bless!
