For the liturgical celebrations and mass readings, we consult the ORDO for Use in the Dioceses of the Philippines published by the Ministry for Liturgical Affairs of Archdiocese of Manila. ORDO contains a listing of the feast to be celebrated with its liturgical rank and color for each day together with the liturgical rubrics to be observed in the recitation of the Divine Office and the celebration of the Eucharist.

For the Mass Readings in Filipino, we use the Ang Pagpapahayag ng Salita ng Diyos (Ikalawang Huwarang Sipi) or also known as Aklat ng Salita ng Diyos (Tagalog Lectionary) also published by the Ministry for Liturgical Affairs of the Archdiocese of Manila.
