The Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, Sacrosanctum Concilium, was promulgated by Pope Paul VI on December 4, 1963. This document calls for ‘the promotion and reform of the liturgy’ and for the establishment in every diocese of ‘a commission on the sacred liturgy under the direction of the bishop, for promoting the liturgical apostolate.’ (SC45)
The current Commission for Liturgy of the Catholic Diocese of Auckland was established by Bishop Patrick Dunn in October 2014 and held its inaugural meeting on 11 March 2015. Its mandate can be accessed here.
Present members are:
Pa Peter Tipene (Chair)
