Liturgical Standards and Resources

In 2007, the Information for the Clergy (“Green Book”) was revised so as to separate the three major types of official policies and guidelines for clergy in the Diocese of Toronto. In 2010, the Green Book’s title was officially changed to “Liturgical Standards and Resources” to better reflect its contents:

  • Liturgy & Worship Information (including Baptism, Marriage, Eucharist, Healing, Funeral and General guidelines)
  • Episcopal Matters and Jurisdiction

For further assistance please contact your Area Bishop’s office, or Ms. Mary Conliffe, Executive Assistant to the Diocesan Bishop.
