The 2016 Symposium, which runs from June 20 through June 23, seeks to discern how liturgical prayer, sacramental formation, and liturgical catechesis can contribute to the new evangelization. The Center for Liturgy knows that the liturgical and sacramental life of the Church offers rich resources for the new evangelization. Further, we believe that Pope Francis’ comprehensive treatment of the new evangelization in Evangelii Gaudium requires us to re-think how we understand the importance of liturgical in our parishes. This year’s gathering will employ the See, Judge, and Act method of theological reflection.
It will also include time for liturgists, clergy, catechists, high school teachers, and campus ministers to gather together and discuss in working groups led by nationally recognized catechetical and liturgical leaders strategies for their own particular community.
