Attention Liturgy Committee Members, RCIA Leaders, Parish Catechists, and anyone interested in learning more about Sacred Space:
Have you ever taken adult catechumens or children on a tour of a church? Have you ever had to explain why the priest kisses the altar? Why do we as Catholics hold as sacred the building in which we worship?
National Liturgical Conference
