Building and Renovating Worship Spaces

“When churches are to be built, let great care be taken that they are suitable for the celebration of liturgical services and for the active participation of the faithful.” – Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, #124

The Office of Worship, in conjunction with the Office of Construction, assists the Bishop with the liturgical aspects for all building or renovating of worship spaces within the Diocese of St. Petersburg.  The Office of Worship has developed the following guidelines and a checklist to assist pastors, architects, builders, and parish building committees when may be building churches and/or renovating worship spaces.
