Liturgy Planning


Find planning tools, tips and resources for your music ministry and liturgy preparation

Important to note: We use the phrase “liturgy planning,” so that music ministers can more easily find the resources listed below. However, it is not accurate to say that one “plans” the liturgy, since the structure of the liturgy is already in place. Rather, one “prepares” the liturgy. As there are options given for the musical aspects, it is accurate to say that one “plans” the music for a celebration or a season.


Liturgy planning online now has an improved, easier-to-use design available in both English and Spanish. Discover new music, browse expert song suggestions and easily prepare the liturgy for your parish. You can sign up for a FREE Basic account here.
