Guidelines for Australia regarding the preparation, planning and construction of places of worship.

‘And when churches are to be built …’ has been written for all those who will be involved in building or renovating places of worship. It draws together from numerous authoritative sources the tradition and teaching of the Church about the architectural setting for celebrating the liturgy. It elaborates principles of liturgy and architecture to inspire and undergird what is to be built. It describes the church building as a whole and according to its parts. It outlines processes to assist Catholic communities in the project of building or renovating a place of worship. In all of this it upholds the value of beauty, the visible manifestation in architecture and art of the truth and goodness of God.

The Church in Australia has long needed a resource to guide and assist Catholic communities, architects and artists in the preparation, planning and construction of places of worship. ‘
And when churches are to be built …’ meets this need. May it be used widely and well.'

Archbishop Denis J Hart, President, Australian Catholic Bishops Conference
