The Liturgical Institute


The Liturgical Institute of the University of Saint Mary of the Lake promotes the liturgical life of the Church through its academic degree programs, publishing, research and special projects. 

Its thorough formation prepares men and women for service in the Church’s liturgical life at the parochial, diocesan and university levels, and includes intelligent participation in the Church’s liturgical life through the daily celebration of Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours.

The Institute’s doors open to the wider public several times each year for lectures and conferences, and its innovative and scholarly publishing imprint, Hillenbrand Books, advances the Catholic theological tradition in the areas of liturgy and sacramental theology.
