First Communion in the Liturgical Life of the Church Workshop
The Office of Liturgy will be hosting a workshop on Friday, October 13, from 3:00-5:00pm, on “First Communion in the Liturgical Life of the Church.” This talk will be given at Saint Joseph’s Seminary by Dr. Donna Eschenauer, Ph.D., associate academic dean at Dunwoodie and the author of First Communion Liturgies: Preparing First-Class Celebrations. This workshop will be of interest to sacrament program coordinators, catechetical leaders, priests, and music directors. In addition to generous time for questions, three pastoral areas will be explored: First Communion in the context of the sacramental life of the parish, liturgy with children, and preparing the liturgy for First Communion. Registration for this workshop is $10 and may be accessed on the Liturgy Office website.
