34th Annual Conference, 2006

Liturgy and Spirituality
June 19-21, 2006


How do we understand our encounter with God in the celebration of the liturgy?  How do we live out our relationship with God in our time spent in prayer apart from the liturgy and in the rest of our day-to-day lives?  The Notre Dame Center for Liturgy's 34th annual conference explored ways of understanding liturgy, spirituality, and the relationship between them.
