“Ars Celebrandi” Workshops 2016 in Licheń, Poland (Press Release)

The third edition of the “Ars Celebrandi” traditional liturgy workshops will take place at the Sanctuary of Our Lady in Licheń, Poland, from August 4-11, 2016. This is the largest event of its kind in Eastern Europe.

Registration of participants has just started. Some 150 participants from Poland and abroad, a few dozen priests among them, will learn or better their knowledge of how to celebrate Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, serve at it, or sing liturgical chant, both Gregorian and polyphonic, under direction of experienced practitioners.  A number of lectures and encounters with special guests are planned.

Celebrations of read, sung or solemn Masses in the Roman or Dominican Rites, as well as the Divine Office will constitute the heart of the day during the workshops, enable the participants and staff to experience the workshops as time of retreat and spiritual growth. Those who wish focus on the time as a spiritual retreat can take part only in liturgical celebrations, and dedicate rest of their time to private prayer or meditation.

The Ars Celebrandi Liturgy Workshops are taking place under the honorable patronage of His Excellence Wiesław Mering, bishop of the diocese of Włocławek, as well as that of the 31st World Youth Day, to be held in Cracow in 2016. Una Voce Polonia Association is in charge of the whole event.
