Participation at Sunday Mass is the most important action of the week for Catholics and it deserves careful preparation. With simple and informative guidance, this book provides a basic overview of the parts of the Mass as well as a foundational context for the celebration of the Sunday Mass. It guides readers through primary liturgical books and documents, highlights best practice, and reflects upon the catechetical and formational power of the liturgy.

As part of the Preparing Parish Worship series, this book includes:

  • Theological reflections on the importance of Sunday Mass
  • Historical overview of the development of Sunday Mass
  • A walk-through the Order of Mass
  • Answers to frequently asked questions
  • Assistance with best liturgical practices
  • Inspirational and informative quotations from Scripture and Church documents

"In an accessible style, Paul Turner provides a comprehensive delve into the theological movements of the Mass. Between his well-referenced sections on the theology, history, and preparation of Sunday Mass, to the FAQ’s, resources, and glossary, this resource leaves the reader confident in knowing both what to do and where to look when questions arise about the liturgy. Turner’s approach is rooted in an empowering theology that all people are called to prepare for Mass, and he provides the resources to support the preparation of the People of God."

"As usual, Paul Turner provides an excellent, must-have resource for anyone involved in the celebration of the Church's liturgy. Perfectly complimenting the General Instruction of the Roman Missal, Sing to the Lord, Ceremonial of Bishops and other liturgical documents, Guide for Celebrating Sunday Mass should also be on one's bookshelf. He writes in a clear, articulate and accessible style which is immediately refreshing and beneficial for both seasoned veterans and neophytes. He does a magnificent job in reinforcing Lex Orandi - Lex Credendi - Lex Vivendi. I recommend it very highly!"


—Eric J. Bermani, DMin (First Year Doctoral Student, Boston University School of Theology)

Diocesan and Cathedral Director of Music (Diocese of Manchester, New Hampshire) and Director of Liturgical Music and Adjunct Professor of Organ, Saint Anselm College

"This marvelously succinct distillation of the celebration of the Eucharist will become a standard go-to reference for anyone who prepares the liturgy. I see liturgy teams using this almost as a textbook. It gives answers to many of the questions currently on the lips of many parish liturgists."
