The learned society meets annually in early January in locations throughout the United States and Canada and has grown from the original eighty-three members to over 400 members from a breadth of religious traditions.
Members of the Academy exchange information within a wide spectrum of liturgical research with representation from diverse Christian churches and Jewish denominations. The primary vehicle for such dialogue is the annual meeting, usually held in the first week in January. Academy newsletters update and connect members throughout the year.
Members gather in an Annual Meeting every January to share their research and scholarship, to celebrate one another’s accomplishments, and to conduct the business of the Academy.
The North American Academy of Liturgy elects their leadership and recognizes the significant contributions of their colleagues during every annual meeting. All members are invited to submit nominations for Academy Officers, the Berekah Award, and the Diekmann Award.
The Academy maintains an ongoing list of career opportunities that are of interest to NAAL members.
The Proceedings of the North American Academy of Liturgy is published annually by the Academy for its membership and for scholars, libraries, and religious communities and organizations that would benefit from the research and collaboration of the Academy.
We remember with prayers and thanksgiving the NAAL members who have died during the past year. Their lives have enriched our study and worship. Each is remembered in the Opening Rite of the Annual Meeting of the Academy.
