MARIA STEIN – The Adoration Guild Lenten Learning Series on What We Do and Use at Mass will be held on March 14 and March 23. Both sessions will be held in the Shrine’s Adoration Chapel and begin at 10 a.m. They are free and open to the public.
These two sessions will explore the many actions, postures, and objects that are part and parcel of the current revised Eucharistic Rite. Some of what people do and use have been part of Mass from almost the very beginning. Other elements of what they do and use have been added over the years, some of which are no longer meaningful. Sorting this out is an interesting and informative undertaking.
Both sessions are presented by Sister Joyce Ann Zimmerman, C.PP.S. For more than 50 years, Zimmerman has belonged to a congregation of women religious founded for Eucharistic Adoration. She is the founding director of the Institute for Liturgical Ministry in Dayton, Ohio; an adjunct professor of liturgy; and a frequent facilitator of workshops on liturgy. She has published numerous scholarly and pastoral liturgical books and articles.
