The Center for Catholic Studies is pleased to offer a course on the liturgy in our second term for the 2021-2022 year. This course is entitled “Introduction to the Liturgy,” and the instructor is Fr. Samuel Bond, Director of the Office of Liturgy for the Diocese of Lake Charles. Father Bond is currently studying for his Licentiate in Sacred Theology (STL) at the Liturgical Institute in Mundelein, Illinois.
The course runs for six Tuesdays, Nov. 9 – Dec. 14, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. and will be held at the Deaf Center, 415 Iris St, Lake Charles LA 70601. Tuition for the class, is $50.00
This course will explore the Church’s rich liturgical tradition, introduce liturgical theology, grow appreciation of the liturgy and assist students to integrate themselves more fully into the liturgical celebrations of the Church. This course will give insight, understanding, and context to the present and past liturgical forms of the Roman Rite. The student will learn the theological, practical, and historical reasons for the development of the liturgy of the Church throughout the centuries and come to understand the theological principles upon which the liturgy has been renewed over the past century.
There are two required texts: The Spirit of the Liturgy by Cardinal Ratzinger and History of the Liturgy: The Major Stages by Marcel Metzger. Other readings will be provided.
