The Liturgy and the Church of Vatican II: Does It Matter?

December 7, 2013 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

Have you ever wondered:

– Why does Vatican II matter at all today? Isn’t that past history, and shouldn’t we focus on the future of the Church?
– What happened at Vatican II that makes any difference to how we celebrate the Mass today?
– How do the changes made by Vatican II affect me personally and the future of the Church today?
– What would happen if Vatican II had never existed? What would happen if the Church leaders today really embraced what happened at Vatican II?

As the Church marks 50 years since Vatican II’s first document on the liturgy, the Diocese of San Jose, in collaboration with several communities of women religious in the Bay Area, will host a day-long workshop with Massimo Faggioli, PhD, a world-renowned theologian and expert on the history and meaning of Vatican II. Dr. Faggioli will help us understand the deeper meaning behind the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, why some still resist the work of the Council, and what the past has to show us about our future as Church.
