Mass Preparation, St Francis Xavier Cathedral

Parish and school Masses require planning, preparation and coordination. The online form "Preparation Checklist for Mass" (below) helps facilitate the planning and preparation, and the resultant Liturgy Outline Checklist provides a formal means of communication and coordination within the parish or school.

Fill out the online form here and upload any draft booklet or PowerPoint presentation, together with the Prayer of the Faithful and any other documentation in the spaces provided on the form. Click on any of the Question Marks located throughout the form to view helpful hints and guidance for completing the form.

Before proceeding to the body of the form, you need to enter a usercode and password. Once your user account is established you may progressively fill out the form in stages, storing it for future completion by pressing "Save Partial Work" at the bottom of the form.

It is not necessary to complete the entire form before submitting it. It is necessary to complete the following sections prior to submitting - Event Details, Person Submitting, General Information, Choices and Music. You can subsequently update your submission with additional information, especially Minister Details, at a later stage.

Immediately after submission you will receive the Liturgy Outline Checklist document, based on the information you have provided. You can use this to communicate your plan with others.
