2012 National Meeting of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions
Don't miss this national conference on multicultural liturgy
Did you know that the United States Church understands that the issues of multicultural liturgy include liturgy for and with youth, teens, and young adults? Young people have a culture all their own, and the Church wants to be attentive to that when it gathers with them to pray and celebrate the sacraments. This October, the Diocese of San Jose will serve as the host for a national annual conference of the liturgy. Participants will come from all over the United States to study the liturgy and advance Vatican II's vision of full, conscious, and active participation by all the faithful in the liturgy. The conference, held this October 9 to 12 at the Doubletree by Hilton in San Jose, will examine the practical issues of multicultural worship on the parish and diocesan levels.
Study sessions on Wednesday and Thursday are especially geared for professional parish staffs and liturgical coordinators. You won’t want to miss one of the keynote speakers, Rev. Brett Hoover, CSP, a young adult himself, who will be talking about how different generations express their culture in worship. He will give us a possible “toolbox” for building communion among the many generations and cultures in our parishes.
