Two workshops on celebrating the Mass with children will be offered in May and sponsored by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Office for Divine Worship.
Both workshops will be held on the 13th floor of the Archdiocesan Pastoral Center, 222 North 17th Street in Philadelphia. Father Gerald Dennis Gill and Jean Madden will be the presenters.
“Children’s Liturgy of the Word” on Wednesday, May 13 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. will provide answers for: What is the children’s liturgy? Why do we offer it? When should it be celebrated? How should it be celebrated? Where should it be celebrated? Who should participate in it?
“The Celebration of the Liturgy and Children” will be Wednesday, May 20 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Topics will include: Catechesis and preparation; sacramental and liturgical participation; liturgical rites; liturgical music; guidance for the Universal Prayer; liturgical celebrations apart from Mass; and devotions.
The workshops are open to all priests, deacons, principals, directors/coordinators of religious education, teachers, catechists, youth ministers and liturgical music directors.
