The Fairfield University Center for Catholic Studies will host a Living Theology Workshop on this coming Wednesday, September 22, at 5 PM EDT. I will be the presenter.
The topic is: Gathering for the Eucharist: Ancient Ritual, Contemporary Challenges. The presentation will highlight several areas of dynamism and positive developments — including liturgical spirituality, who ministers, and the role of the Word of God — followed by a brief overview of recent challenges, including the planned US bishops’ statement on eucharistic consistency, simmering anxieties about what ordinary Catholics actually believe, and the impact of the pandemic on how we celebrate.
