Worship in The Mission Diocese is liturgically eclectic and may be conducted using a wide variety of liturgical sources. Some of us celebrate according to the Roman Catholic Novus Ordo Missae (The New Order of Mass, 1969). Others use the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer, the Lutheran Book of Worship, the United Methodist Book of Worship, the Presbyterian Book of Common Worship, the Book of Worship of the United Church of Christ and other texts resulting from the liturgical consensus of the 1960s, especially those utilizing the translations of common prayers by the Consultation on Common Texts. Other sources may be approved by the bishop who is ultimately responsible for worship in this local church. Occasionally we will use our own Saint Nicholas Liturgy, a variation on the ancient Gallican Rite that our bishop has been tweaking for years.
