“Reform of the Reform”

November conference scheduled to discuss current state of Catholic liturgy

“Reform of the Reform?” What does this phrase mean, and what progress is being made? To explore these key questions on the current state of Catholic liturgy, the Adoremus Society for the Renewal of the Sacred Liturgy is sponsoring a one-day conference on Saturday, Nov. 3, at St. Mary’s Church in Escondido.

Bishop Salvatore Cordileone, auxiliary bishop of San Diego and a canon lawyer who was a member of the Vatican court, the Apostolic Signatura, before returning to his native city in 2002, will be a featured presenter at the conference.

Other presenters include Fr. Joseph Fessio, SJ, Helen Hull Hitchcock, and Fr. Jerry Pokorsky.

The day's events will also include a Gregorian chant workshop, Mass with Bishop Cordileone as principal celebrant and homilist, and singing by Our Lady of the Rosary Schola. An afternoon panel discussion will include a question-and-answer session.

The day's events begin at 9 a.m.

Cost is $15 per person or $25 per family.

For information and registration, contact by email, or phone (800) 526-2151, Ext. 413, or (626) 367-6680.

Sponsors say space is limited and ask that people who want to attend register early.
