Includes: Introduction, "The Liturgical Environment," A Journey Through Space, Things Used for Liturgy, Aesthetics of Sacred Space, A Spirituality for Ministers of the Liturgical Environment, Responsibilities of Ministers of the Liturgical Environment, Enhancing the Environment for Liturgical Seasons and Occasions, and Concluding Thoughts.
