Join the Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions (FDLC) for its annual national meeting at the historic art deco Hilton Netherland Hotel. Topic: Sign and Pledge of Communion: Masses with Children.
This three-day meeting brings together diocesan and national leaders in worship, the members of the US Bishops’ Committee on Divine Worship, and catechetical leaders to focus on the importance of good liturgical celebrations with children.
Full meeting and study day only options.
Study Day: Oct 11
In the midst of the three day national meeting, Wednesday Oct 11 will be a Study Day for meeting attendees, catechetical and Catholic school leaders (principals, DREs, religion teachers, and other evangelists).
The meeting’s theme is “Sign and Pledge of Communion: Masses with Children.” We plan to honor the fiftieth anniversary of the Directory for Masses with Children, the universal document promulgated by Pope Saint Paul VI in 1973.
The topic will be especially important as we strive to bring young families back to church after the pandemic and to provide for the liturgical formation of both children and parents.
A roster of outstanding presenters will offer insights into best pastoral practices, engage with Church documents, and propose formation standards.
