The National Centre for Liturgy is offering a new ten-week course on the Sacraments. The course, which will begin on 4 February, will offer participants from parishes across the country the opportunity of being part of a course entitled Sacraments: Parish Celebrations on Life’s Journey. 

This new course sets out to offer participants an overview of Christian Marriage; of Christian initiation for Children – their Baptism as children; the Order of Penance and of the Order of Christian Funerals. The course will also look at some other elements such as the ministry of hospitality and welcome.

The course consists of 10 two-hour sessions and will begin on Wednesday 6 February, at 10.00am in the National Centre for Liturgy, at St Patrick’s College, Maynooth.

Following class each day, there is the Celebration of Eucharist in St Mary’s Oratory at 12.05pm.  Participants are welcome to take part.
