Fr. Martin will speak to us about Liturgy and Liturgical Spirituality just in time for the church’s celebration of Holy Week.  As everyone knows, Holy Week is that time in the Church’s year when, through her Liturgy, the Church celebrates those moments in His life when the Lord underwent the events which led to his crucifixion, death, and ultimately, Resurrection. The Liturgy is the privileged means by which we actually participate in those moments, not just one week out of the year, but every time we celebrate his Sacred Mysteries. Father will give us a basic understanding of the components of the Church’s Liturgy and its components, and will also entertain questions about the same.

Father Martin suggests that participants review the Liturgies of Holy Week found in missalettes and perhaps read The Spirit of the Liturgy (available at www.amazon.ca. Click the book to order your copy!) which Pope Benedict XVI wrote while he was still Cardinal Ratzinger.

Day Retreat includes coffee, tea, snacks, on-site parking, Mass & fabulous buffet luncheon. There will also be an opportunity to purchase beautiful ‘resurrected’ hand-crafted candles & rosaries and rosary accessories by Resurrection Candles.
