MINISTRY & LITURGY is a new name for a magazine in its 30th year of service. For years it has been known as ML, and it will continue to carry that nickname. But its former formal name, MODERN LITURGY, has slowly eased off center stage. This change brings the name of the publication to the same place the content has always been, namely, practical resources for all ministry personnel.

MINISTRY & LITURGY (ML) is a professional magazine for members of the parish ministry team. It is dedicated to exploring the connection between liturgy and life, unpacking the treasures of the Roman liturgy, and helping ministers use the visual, musical, lively, poetic, and environmental arts to shape liturgies to their local culture. Below you will find tables of contents of recent issues. A portion of the content is available on-line to give you an idea of what each issue contains. Enjoy. If you would like to subscribe, you may do so, RISK FREE.
