Liturgy Week 2021

An Annual Conference Dedicated to
the Renewal of the Sacred Liturgy

Register Now!

Nov. 29th - Dec. 2nd


Join us for our first annual liturgy week! Focusing on Sacramental Preparation for RCIA, this conference will teach directors how to build a robust program with a solid foundation in Sacramental Theology.

Each full day at this conference consists of a short course made up of five 1-hour lectures as well as sung liturgies. You will leave with a better understanding of the RCIA process from your first candidate meeting to the mystagogical formation after initiation.

What is a liturgy week?

The Liturgical Movement that began in France in the 19th century was created to aid in the liturgical renewal of the Catholic Church. Figures of this movement established the "Liturgy Week" conference where priests and Catholic liturgists from all over the world would attend to learn and discuss different sacramental topics. The first of these conferences in America was held in Chicago in 1940. It is our hope to reignite this tradition in the same place that it started over eighty years ago.
