Liturgy 

The unity of the members of the church in Christ is expressed most fully in liturgy. Liturgy expresses the church's identity and mission, including the church's calling to invite others and to serve with concern for the needs of the world. Whether the liturgy is done by many or few, it is the corporate liturgy of the whole church. Liturgy does not include private devotions or acts of piety by individuals and groups. For example, saying the Rosary is not a liturgy.
