The ELC is authorized to publish liturgical booklets, texts, and musical notation for official use, with episcopal approbation, in the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Edmonton (UCEE).

The Commission avails itself of pastoral experience, academic expertise, and external resources to provide eparchial clergy and faithful with sound liturgical practices in keeping with the liturgical patrimony of the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church.

The ELC promotes and endeavors to improve the liturgical life of the UCEE in the following ways:

  • Studying and researching liturgical issues;
  • Advising the Eparchial Bishop on liturgical matters;
  • Providing ritual and liturgical texts and books for use in the Eparchy;
