Who We Are

The Southwest Liturgical Conference (SWLC) is a liturgical organization comprising the twenty-seven Roman Catholic Dioceses of Region X of the Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions (FDLC) in the states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming. Founded in 1962, the SWLC reflects the rich Catholic heritage of the Southwest present in richly diverse multicultural, urban, and rural communities.

Our purpose

Our purpose is to foster the ongoing renewal of the liturgy as expressed in the "Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy" and the significant liturgical documents of the Church. In collaboration with all Bishops of Region X, diocesan directors of worship and other liturgical leaders, the SWLC provides opportunities for education, formation, and networking. Challenges and opportunities for growth extend also to those who minister beyond the boundries of Region X.
