To promote the liturgical formation “of the faithful and also their active participation in the liturgy both internally and externally, taking into account their age and condition, their way of life, and their stage of religious development” so all the faithful may “become thoroughly imbued with the spirit and power of the liturgy.” (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy 19, 14)
Liturgy Training Publications was established by the Archdiocese of Chicago in 1964 as a training program to promote the liturgical formation of the faithful and advance the active participation in the liturgy called for by the Constitution on Sacred Liturgy of the Second Vatican Council. Training for lay readers and commentators, and talks on the liturgy for priests, were among LTP’s first initiatives. Soon, parishes and other dioceses began to request materials from these presentations.
Since then, LTP has produced written and video materials in English and Spanish for liturgical ministers, parishioners, and those who study the liturgy. In recent years, LTP has reclaimed its roots, offering in-person and virtual training in the liturgy. Everything LTP does is steeped in the spirit of liturgical renewal and is faithful to the Church’s liturgical tradition expressed in the rites and documents of the Roman Catholic Church.
