Missals / Hymnals product collection


Do you struggle with choosing between a missal and a hymnal for your parish? This can be a very difficult decision because they are both great worship aids. Find out how these resources can work alone or in harmony to best meet the needs of your community.

Join OCP’s Assistant to the Publisher Wade Wisler for a FREE 60-minute webinar as he provides in-depth information about missals and hymnals.

The Missals or Hymnals webinar will cover:

  • How is a missal-based worship program different from a hymnal program?
  • Are there advantages to using an annual missal over a permanent hymnal?
  • How can missals and hymnals address changing liturgical and demographic needs?
  • Is there room for both missals and hymnals in your worship?
  • Which resource would best foster full, conscious and active participation in your church community?
