Congregational Resource Guide
Finding the right resources for your congregation
Approved by the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops (USCCB) in 2001, Built of Living Stones is both a theological and practical guide for both local bishops and parishes considering either the renovation of existing worship space or the construction of a new church. It presents a deep theological understanding of the Catholic Church’s tradition and how church buildings, the arts, and architecture complement the sacred liturgy and all sacred celebrations. Additionally, it is an important guide for local liturgy committees or building committees and for architects, liturgical consultants and artists, contractors, and other professional engaged in the design and/or construction of places of worship.
