In his opening address, Fr Paul thanked Bishop Julius Dusin Gitom for the trust and confidence placed in him to lead the said Commission. The Bishop is the 'promoter and guardian' of the liturgical life of the Diocese. He expressed his appreciation to all members who had come from far to attend the meeting. Their attendance is a clear indication of commitment and sacrifice for the service in building God's Kingdom through the liturgical ministry.

He touched on the guidelines and stressed on the main aim of the DLC which is to promote high standards of liturgical celebrations in accord with Church documents concerning liturgy. He then briefed the members regarding the latest recommendations from the Bishop's Conference regarding Eulogy, Benediction and Novena to our Lady of Perpetual Succour.

He informed the members that the new changes to General Instruction of the Roman Missal (G.I.R.M.) which had received the recognitio from Rome will be fully implemented in the Diocese by 1st January 2010. For that he will plan to visit all parishes to brief the Parish Liturgical Committee so that preparations for the full implementation can take place by the said date.
