Stroik , appearing in. A few years ago I spoke with a pastor in Chicago about a new church his parish was about to build. Parishes and cathedrals all over the country are embarking on substantial building campaigns. By all accounts, the past forty years have produced few church buildings that the American laity are proud of and fewer of which the cultural establishment approves. No doubt some credit for the present state of architecture should be given to a small booklet entitled Environment and Art in Catholic Worship EACW presently being revised. Both its promoters and its detractors would concede that the statement has been more successful than anyone dreamt twenty years ago.
The purpose of the document is to provide principles for those involved in preparing liturgical space. The committee statement received the approval of the Administrative Committee in keeping with Conference policy. Because the document was not proposed as a statement of the whole conference of Bishops, the full body of bishops was never asked to consider it. Environment and Art in Catholic Worship does not have the force of law in and of itself. It is not particular law for the dioceses of the United States of America, but a commentary on that law by the Committee for the Liturgy.
