He also urged all present to read the instructions in the missal carefully because of the clear guidelines the missal gives for how liturgy can be celebrated.

Religious education co-ordinators were also invited to this most recent conference day because of their key role in organising liturgy in the school.
Bishop Peter Ingham addressed the group and introduced the members of the diocesan liturgy commission, who provide advice on the celebration of liturgy in the diocese.
