St Andrew's Foundation Seminar - Keeping Liturgical Formation Moving
As the Catholic Church advances through the twenty first century it
continues to be deeply influenced by the great legacy of Pope John Paul II
and Pope Benedict XVI. The Pontificate of Pope Benedict XVI signalled
a new phase in the life of the Roman Catholic Church and produced a
creative synthesis in which sociological influences, ecclesial concerns,
catechetical endeavour and a liturgical agenda interact. At this stage in its
history the Catholic Church faces various other concurrent pastoral and
liturgical challenges in terms of dwindling congregations, a diminishing
number of priests and what some perceive to be a widening of the
perceived gap between the Church and people in the context of a
dramatically changed social landscape. Despite these massive societal and
ecclesial changes and their sometimes pernicious effects, (or perhaps
because of them), there is also a sense that the Church is entering a vital
and exciting era in liturgical and catechetical development. This seminar
will focus on the need for on-going liturgical formation during every phase
of ecclesiological development.
Speaker: Dr. Josephine Smith (PT of Religious Education St. Andrew's Secondary School, Glasgow)
December 10 at 5pm (St Andrew's Building University of Glasgow Room 433).
