A peer-reviewed, international ecumenical journal for the study of liturgy and liturgical renewal. Founded in 1926 by Virgil Michel, OSB, and the monks of Saint John's Abbey, Worship is published four times a year in Collegeville, Minnesota.
To celebrate 90 years of ecumenical work, Worship has been redesigned to make the journal easier to read in depth and efficiently browse and scan, providing an improved reader experience in both digital and print formats.
Features of New Design:
Modern cover design
Clean, easier-to-read content
Available in four-color, introducing a contemporary aesthetical presence and allowing for images throughout
Emphasis on familiar features like “Amen Corner”, essays, and book reviews
Notice of Retraction:
We have recently learned that large portions of the article, "The Road to Emmaus and the Road to Gaza: Luke 24:13-35 and Acts 8:26-40” (Worship, 68.2, March 1994, 117-131) by Basilian Father Thomas M. Rosica were plagiarized from a variety of sources. We are in the process of retracting the article and notifying the various publications and/or authors from whose work elements were used without appropriate documentation.
Worship continues to be the leading worldwide, ecumenical liturgical journal that combines the highest standards of scholarship with practical pastoral applications for the churches in the twenty-first century.
+ R. William Franklin, Bishop of Western New York, The Episcopal Church
In holding together the engagement with liturgy nourished by faith and a commitment to liturgical studies rooted in scholarly tools of inquiry, Worship has served both the church and the academy exceedingly well.
Teresa Berger, Yale Institute of Sacred Music and Divinity School
Worship is a proof of the ecumenical impact of the liturgy and shows how the liturgy can serve the rediscovery of the unity of faith.
