The indispensable guide to curating resources for worship in the Episcopal Church.

Newly revised and reorganized, Planning for Rites and Rituals is a guide to liturgical planning in the Episcopal Church, organized around the seasons of the church year and the cycle of Sunday readings in the revised common lectionary. Structured as a series of three volumes—one for each year in the lectionary cycle—Planning for Rites and Rituals includes guidance for making seasonal choices among the church’s authorized worship resources, brief commentary on each Sunday’s readings, guidance is approaching the Prayers of the People, and suggestions for observing commemorations from the church’s calendar. New relections on the readings by Deirdre Good offer fresh insghts to preachers. New introductory material suggests approaches to curating liturgical resources.

New editor Andrew Wright has applied his years of experience in planning liturgy at parishes across the Episcopal Church and mentoring clergy to this revision. Including contributions from throughout the church, this volume offers clergy and lay liturgical planners a framework for planning throughout the church year.
