larger font

At the start of 2011, the Diocese of Raleigh is unrolling a broad range of formation opportunities to prepare for the implementation of the revised Roman Missal on the First Sunday of Advent, November 27, 2011. A series of workshops is scheduled across the diocese, beginning January 13th, to help educate and form a deeper understanding of the changes that will take place and to prepare the faithful to welcome and pray with the new translation at the start of Advent (see full schedule below).

The workshop will be a multimedia presentation for Faith Formation Directors, Catechists, Teachers, Youth leaders, and Parish Liturgical Ministers. The sessions will include a video presentation by Msgr. Michael Clay, D. Min., Pastor of St. Ann Catholic Church, Clayton, NC, which will include a liturgical overview in preparation for the reception of the revised Roman Missal. The day will be broken into four sessions and will cover Liturgical Theology, Liturgical Spirituality, Ritual Prayer and the Revised Roman Missal and its changes.
