As of this week, Tim O’Malley is acting director of the Notre Dame Center for Liturgy (formerly the Notre Dame Center for Pastoral Liturgy). David Fagerberg will continue to serve as the Center’s senior advisor.
O’Malley completed a B.A. in theology and philosophy and a liturgy M.T.S. at Notre Dame. He is now completing his doctoral degree in liturgy and catechetics at Boston College. He is interested in liturgical and sacramental theology, the history of Christian formation, and mystagogy.
The purpose of the Institute for Church Life, which houses the Center, is “to link the resources of the University to the lives of churchgoers and church leaders at various levels (that is, at the level of the bishop, of parish clergy, of religious and lay leadership).” Over the coming years, the NDCL plans to increase its activity to fulfill better this mission and to serve its various constituencies on a diocesan, parochial, and university level.
