The Society of St Gregory is offering a modular course to develop our liturgical understanding and study in twenty-first century Britain, commencing in September.
The Society is committed to promoting and supporting the liturgy of the Catholic Church in the UK. This modular course is their contribution to the development of liturgical understanding and study in twenty first century Britain.
Over the course, which will be run in partnership with the London Jesuit Centre and take place via Zoom, there will be the opportunity to explore the Catholic liturgy through a series of distinct yet complementary modules of study. Each module will provide a theological and historical overview which will form the background for a deeper study of how we celebrate the liturgy today. From this it is hoped that students will feel skilled to foster and lead liturgy in their own parish and community.
Within each theme we will look at how we apply general principles of liturgy, how music and space affect the way we celebrate, and above all how we are enabling people to pray together.
Each module will take three one-hour sessions, 7.30 – 9.00 pm, offering time afterwards for questions and comments. Between sessions leaders would be able to offer some reading/research.
The course is an introductory year leading, hopefully, to courses of greater depth in following years. The target audience is people who have a serious interest in Catholic liturgy but have not had the opportunity to develop their knowledge. There is no written work attached to the course. A Certificate of Attendance will be available at the end of each module/the course.
£30 for an individual module.
