Liturgy

Department: Theology
Teachers: Matthew Schaeffer
Open to: Seniors
Length: 1 Semester

This course is designed to provide students with the skills necessary to become competent liturgical ministers in the 21st century.  Liturgy harmonizes the academic study of Sacramental Theology and Church History with the study, preparation, and praxis of Liturgy.  Using the new Roman Missal, students will discover the richness of Catholic ritual through hands-on preparation, planning, and preparing music for school liturgies.  Members of this course will form the core singing/instrumental group for the school-wide liturgies. Through a solid historical and theological understanding of Hebrew and Christian Scripture in worship, as well as meditative praying of the scriptures, this course strives to synthesize academic theory with vibrant praxis, empowering the students with skills and experience.
