Church Art & Architecture Commission

The Church Art and Architecture Commission [CAAC] is a committee of Catholic professionals that serves the Diocesan Bishop by helping to create appropriate spaces for Catholic worship, in keeping with church guidelines and liturgical principles.

Part of the Office for Worship, this commission is the primary review body and resource for the construction and renovation (including restoration) of churches and chapels in the Diocese, from the early discernment process to the completion of the work.

The committee meets as needed, generally on the second Thursday of the month.
