Manhattan College will commemorate the 50th anniversary of Vatican II’s Liturgy Constitution. A three-day series of events will highlight the importance of the Council’s reform of the Roman Catholic liturgy which will include the following:
An academic lecture on Vatican II’s liturgical reform and the more recently disputed legacy of the Council to be delivered by Professor Massimo Faggioli of St. Thomas University, author of Vatican II: The Battle for Meaning and True Reform: Liturgy and Ecclesiology in Sacrosanctum Concilium.
Allied with the Teach-In, Catholic Studies program will make available materials from Vatican II for faculty to introduce, comment on, include in classes in the lead up to/take away from Teach-In.
A noontime liturgical celebration highlighting the impact of the reform of worship which opened the door to cultural diversity and the active participation of the faithful in the Church’s central act of worship.
