Liturgy: Communion with God and Prime Means for Insertion into Christ

The goal of the Christian Initiation process is to bring souls into the Mystery of Christ and so share in His divine life. Intimacy with Jesus takes place above all in the Church’s liturgy, where He is present and the grace which flows from His saving work is made available to those who would receive it.  The road to initiation in all believers is singularly paschal in nature, and it is ultimately in the sacred liturgy that we experience and are reminded of all God’s blessings from creation to the cross to our recreation in sacramental grace.  God initiates and we respond, and will until Jesus comes again.  Insertion into this mystery of Christ, participation in the sacramental economy, requires us to live our lives as we were created, as liturgical people.  Our life is liturgy.  How we move others toward that same understanding requires creativity and humility and cooperation with the Holy Spirit. This workshop will provide participants with an understanding of the power of the liturgy so that they can in turn help those in the catechumenal process to encounter Christ. 

This workshop is coming soon!
