On a Sunday morning, priests may look like they are doing the work of our liturgy, but the Episcopal Church is intentional that our worship is the work of all people, lay and clergy alike. The word "liturgy" means the "work of the people." The Prayer Book of a priest is no different than the one in the pew. Because of this, a variety of roles exist to help the laity (non-clergy) not only participate beyond the pew, but to lead portions of our liturgy.
