A practical liturgy day for ordinands, curates and other clergy to increase understanding of catholic liturgical traditions, rubrics and ceremonial. This is not a course for those who are already experts in this field, but for those who would like to learn how to employ a simple, dignified and well-ordered ceremonial in liturgical worship. We hope to answer any questions you have about ceremonial, and to offer practical guidance about ordering and celebrating the liturgy with confidence. We encourage clergy from all theological traditions to take part.Spaces are limited to 15 participants. We ask you to bring either cassock, Alb and cincture or cassock, Alb, amice and cincture with you.
