Order of Christian Funerals

Fall Liturgy Workshop 2017 | Order of Christian Funerals

October 12, 2017

The Office of Divine Worship's Fall Liturgy Workshop will focus this year on the Order of Christian Funerals.

Clergy, pastoral leaders, liturgists, pastoral musicians, worship committees, and parish staff/volunteers will have the opportunity to break-open the Church's funeral rites and approach the rites with new focus and understanding, and learn best practices to use in their parish communities and to assist those who mourn.

Keynote speaker will be D. Todd Williamson, Director of the Office of Divine Worship, Archdiocese of Chicago.

Participants are asked to bring a copy of the Order of Christian Funerals (with Cremation Rite). The book is available from Amazon, Catholic Book Publishing, Liturgical Press, and your local Catholic bookstore.
