Office of Liturgy and Worship

The Office of Liturgy and Worship reflects the voice of the bishop - the chief liturgist - in the liturgical life of the Diocese of Brownsville.


In the Diocese of Brownsville, the Master of Ceremonies will assist Bishop Flores and Bishop Avilés at Masses and events taking place in their assigned deaneries. We ask that parishes planning special ceremonies involving one or both of the bishop, please contact their respective MC to assist in the preparation.
